Technology Utilization, the Key to Independence. Proceedings of the Annual Conference on Rehabilitation Engineering (5th, Houston, Texas, August 22-26, 1982). Volume 2.
O'Leary, James P., Ed.; O'Reagan, James R., Ed.
This document contains abstracts of all papers presented at the conference. The papers demonstrate how the results of rehabilitation engineering activities have increased the independence of handicapped people and enabled them to more easily integrate their lives into the mainstream of society. The 136 abstracts are organized into the following sections: "Communication Technology,""Systems and Devices for Daily Living,""Service Delivery,""Computer Applications,""Orthotic Devices and Systems,""Neuromuscular Systems,""Assistive Devices,""Work Site and Vocational Rehabilitation,""Biomechanics and Measurements,""Seating and Posture Control,""Interfaces and Biofeedback,""Wheelchairs and Mobility,""Aids for People with Sensory Impairments," and "Student Design Competition." The abstracts are generally one page in length and many contain charts, graphs, or photographs. (JDD)
