Debilitating neuromuscular disorders and traumatic brain, spinal cord or peripheral injuries have a devastating effect on those who suffer from them. Written from an engineering perspective, and based on a course taught by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Neurorehabilitation Devices first helps the designer to better understand and formulate design, measurement and control systems for biomedical devices used in the treatment and recovery of people suffering from these disorders. Just some of the topics covered in this book are: methods to allow an amputee to control a powered artificial arm by means of electrical signals generated by contractions of muscles of the residual limb in combination with motor nerve activity from peripheral nerves, as well as the development of new technologies to use electrical stimulation to treat the hyperactive bladder, to electrically induce bowel movement and defecation, and to develop methods for selective stimulation of nerve fibres.

THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO DEVELOPING NEUROREHABILITATION DEVICES
Written from an engineering perspective, this solutions-oriented reference enables readers to fully understand the fundamental principles and terminology of rehabilitation medicine and successfully apply them to the development of human neurorehabilitation devices.
With this detailed reference, readers will be able to develop state-of-the-art design, measurement, and control systems and solve the highly specialized problems inherent in biomedical devices used in the treatment and recovery of individuals suffering from neuro-muscular impairments and traumatic brain, spinal cord, and peripheral injuries.
