Summary This textbook is a resource for clinically relevant rehabilitation information. Evidence-based coverage offers essential guidelines on orthotic/prosthetic prescription, pre- and post-intervention gait assessment and outcome measurement, and working with special populations. This text provides the strong foundation in and appreciation for the field of orthotics and prosthetics that will give you the critical skills needed when working with this unique client population. Inside you'll find: comprehensive coverage of rehabilitation in a variety of environments, including acute care, long-term care, home health care, and outpatient settings; authoritative information from the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, 2nd edition is incorporated throughout to keep you up to date with the recognized standard in the field; WHO International Classification of Function model provides consistent language and an international standard to describe and measure health and disability from a biopsychosocial perspective; case studies present real-life scenarios that demonstrate how key concepts apply to clinical decision making and evidence-based practice; and a 2-color design and a wealth of tables and boxes highlight vital information for quick reference and ease of use. New to this edition: New! Chapter on athletics after amputation exploring advanced training and athletics, including running and athletic competition, to enhance the quality of life for persons with amputation; New! Chapter on the high risk foot and wound healing helps you recognize, treat, and manage wounds for the proper fit and managemnt of the patient; New! Chatper on advanced prosthetic rehabilitation provides more thorough rehabilitation methods beyond the early care of persons learning to use thier prostheses; updated photos and illustration reflect current clinical practice; and updated chapters covering assessment of gait with a focus on clinically useful outcome measures, motor control and motor learning incorporating new insights into neuroplasticity and functional recovery, and a new integrated chapter on lower extremity orthoses that assist in clincial decision making about the best options for patients.
