Here is the ONLY text to bridge the gap between current motor control theory and research, and its application to clinical practice.

A systems theory of motor control and a clinical or "task-oriented" approach to examination and intervention are presented. The perfect BALANCE of features: / Functional approach provides a practical model of rehabilitation. / Specific examples of theoretical models apply theories to clinical practice. / Drawings, charts, tables and photographs clarify postural control and functional mobility.
