Rehabilitation Engineering Sourcebook [and] Rehabilitation Engineering Sourcebook Supplement I.
Institute for Information Studies, Falls Church, VA.
Intended for use by rehabilitation counselors and work supervisors, the sourcebook contains 173 problems and solutions provided by rehabilitation engineering. A section titled "Guidelines for Formulating Problem Statements" is intended to summarize the most effective ways for either disabled individuals or rehabilitation practitioners to ask concisely and in functional terms for what is needed from the rehabilitation engineer. The main body of the book consists of brief summaries of actual problems and their solutions in the following areas: activities of daily living, communication, homemaking, mobility recreation training, transportation, and work. The last section presents an annotated listing of the contributing rehabilitation engineering centers and projects as well as other resources. The annotations briefly describe areas of specialization and/or other pertinent information about the resources cited. Indexes provide access by either the problem (etiology/functional limitation) or the solution (device/specific activity). A supplement of over 100 additional case examples is also included. (DB)
