Description

Technology-Assisted Neurorehabilitation introduces biomedical engineers, health professionals and researchers to the study and integration of neurorehabilitation advances, specifically focusing on applied technologies and mathematical methods. Coverage includes neuroanatomy and neuromodulation, robotic rehabilitation devices, signal processing, human-machine interfaces, software development, serious games and virtual reality. It takes an interdisciplinary approach, including real world applications and new trends. Both medical and technological fields are represented, with a focus on neurological disease. With the computerization of today's therapeutic technology, this book is a valuable asset to any student in the bioengineering or healthcare fields.

Key Features

  • Offers comprehensive coverage of the basics in neurorehabilitation technologies
  • Provides reviews of research on each individual topic within the context of their clinical applications
  • Presents an anatomical/medical overview of normal human physiology and pathology
  • Applies technology, engineering and computing to a rehabilitative top-down approach
