Booknews
Technological and design advances in ortheses (braces) and prostheses (artificial limbs) make it imperative that health professionals update their knowledge in this area. The initial section of the 31 contributions builds baseline knowledge in a multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation. Subsequent sections also take a more functional than technical track so as not to become obsolete in specifying the indications for orthoses; the biomechanical principles of orthotic design (in the management of fractures, burns, hand and foot impairments); and prosthetics for patients coping with amputation. Includes b&w illustrations of equipment and patients. Lusardi is a professor of physical therapy at Sacred Heart U. in Fairfield, CT; Nielsen is a health care consultant in Wellfleet, MA. All the contributors must contend with the US managed health care system. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
