Atlas of Orthoses and Assistive Devices by Advances in the material sciences, 3D printing technology, functional electrical stimulation, smart devices and apps, FES technology, sensors and microprocessor technologies, and more have lately transformed the field of orthotics, making the prescription of these devices more complex than ever before. Atlas of Orthoses and Assistive Devices, 5th Edition, brings you completely up to date with these changes, helping physiatrists, orthopaedic surgeons, prosthetists, orthotists, and other rehabilitative specialists work together to select the appropriate orthotic device for optimal results in every patient. Provides an introduction to Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) systems relating to Assistive Technology (AT) systems and orthotics. Includes Key Points in every chapter so you can quickly access expert guidance. Maintains a valuable balance of content that is essential for both physiatrists and orthopaedic surgeons. Covers state-of-the-art topics in the areas of biomechanics, fabrication techniques, and construction of orthoses with advanced technologies. Incorporates an all-new, vibrant full-color design to enhance illustrations and make navigation fast and easy. Places greater emphasis on carbon fiber materials and lightweight thermoplastics. Includes content on 3D printing technology and how it has revolutionized fabrication strategies. Features a more in-depth discussion of sensors and microprocessor technologies, advances in FES technology with respect to orthotics, smart devices and relevant apps, and the use of scanner technology in orthotic fabrication. Explains new orthotic devices and their indications from acute traumatic situations through chronic rehabilitation needs. Expert ConsultT eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience allows you to search all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.
Atlas of Pain Management Injection Techniques by Focusing on the "how-to" details of pain management injection techniques, this best-selling atlas helps you master the key nerve blocks you need to know to successfully treat common and uncommon pain syndromes. Nearly 200 joint and muscular injections, as well as 30 brand-new injection techniques, are presented in a highly illustrated, easy-to-follow format. Dr. Steven D. Waldman walks you through every essential pain management procedure used today - from the head and neck to the foot and ankle, and everywhere in between. Shows exactly how to evaluate the causes of pain, identify the most promising injection technique, locate the injection site with precision, and deliver effective pain relief to your patients. Helps you find what you need quickly with a logical organization by anatomic region, and templated chapters that cover indications and clinical considerations, clinically relevant anatomy, technique, side effects and complications, and Dr. Waldman's own clinical pearls. Focuses on the "how" rather than the "why" of office-based procedures, including greatly expanded ultrasound content that includes illustrations showing proper transducer placement, patient positioning, and ultrasound images. Includes 30 brand-new injection techniques, including Greater Auricular Nerve Block, Genicular Nerve Block, Medial Cutaneous Nerve Block, Digital Nerve Block of the Thumb, Sacral Nerve Block, Injection Technique For Plantar Fasciitis, and many more. Features new full color drawings that show appropriate needle placement and trajectory used to reach each target, as well as photographs, radiographs, ultrasound, CT, and MRI images throughout.
