Donath, Max, Ed.; And Others
These proceedings include 147 conference papers from 26 discussion sessions, 19 presentations from 6 poster sessions, and 64 works from a multimedia theater program on rehabilitation technology. Addressed in the individual sessions were the following general topics: clinical service delivery in vocational education, prosthetics and orthotics (sensory feedback/shape sensing), visual and auditory sensory aids, clinical delivery for children, technology transfer, applications of clinical service delivery, service delivery structures and policy issues, quantitative assessment, robotics, computer applications, biomechanics, functional electrical stimulation, manual and powered wheelchairs and community mobility, alternative augmentative communication, and seating. The following selective list of papers is representative: "Scientists and Engineers with Disabilities Evaluate Assistive Devices" (Brooks, Redden); "Sensory Feedback in Upper-Extremity Prosthetics" (Lovely, Hudgins); "An Optical Method for Noncontact 3-D Measurement" (Jalkio, Case); "Guidelines for the Use of Automated Learning Devices by Persons Who Are Multiply Handicapped" (Levin); "Toward Telephonic Transmission of Sign Language for the Deaf" (Foulds); "Stimulating the Manufacturing and Distribution of Rehabilitation Technology (Scadden); "A High-Speed Intraoral Switching Device for the Mobility Impaired" (Bradshaw, Pryor, DiPietro, Warfield); "A Service Delivery Model for the Provision of Specialized Seating" (Mundy and Phripp); "Software Design Methodology for Microcomputer-Based Aids: Practical Considerations in Implementation" (Demasco, Galdieri); "Nature and Proportion of Physical Impairments among Indiana's Farm Operators" (Tormoehlen, Field); "Development of an Advanced Robotic Aid" (Leifer, Michalowski, and Van der Loos); "An Independent Vocational Workstation for a Quadriplegic" (Fu); "Computer-Based Toys for Disabled Children" (Ellingson); "Rehabilitation Implications of In Vivo Hip Pressure Measurements" (Mann et al.); "Real-Time Animation of Human Walking for the Evaluation of Pathological Gait" (Morris, Larson, Donath); "Development and Use of a Robotic Arm System with Very Young, Developmentally Delayed Children" (Hoseit, Liu, Cook); "One-Finger Operation of the IBM Family of Personal Computers" (Lee, Vanderheiden, Rasmussen); "The Ultimate Wheelchair--A Mobile Platform that Permits the Person to Fully Adapt to His Environment" (Purdy); "Diagnostic Intervention to Determine Skills and System Requirements for a Nonoral, Blind, Physically Disabled Adult" (Stoveld); "Application of Multiple Workstudy Analysis in the Development of Vocabularies for Augmentative Communication Systems" (Cress, Vanderheiden); "A Methodology to Assist in the Prescription of Wheelchairs" (Shapcott et al.); "A Multidisciplinary Approach to Feeding Assessment at Gillette Children's Hospital" (Baker, Yu, Gottesman); and "Man-Lift Attachment for Paraplegic Tractor Operators" (Richey, Field).
