Assistive Technology Assessment Handbook, Second Edition, proposes an international ideal model for the assistive technology assessment process, outlining how this model can be applied in practice to re-conceptualize the phases of an assistive technology delivery system according to the biopsychosocial model of disability. The model provides reference guidelines for evidence-based practice, guiding both public and private centers that wish to compare, evaluate, and improve their ability to match a person with the correct technology model. This second edition also offers a contribution to the Global Cooperation on Assistive Technology (GATE) initiative, whose activities are strongly focused on the assistive products service delivery model. Organized into three parts, the handbook: gives readers a toolkit for performing assessments; describes the roles of the assessment team members, among them the new profession of psychotechnologist; and reviews technologies for rehabilitation and independent living, including brain–computer interfaces, exoskeletons, and technologies for music therapy. Edited by Stefano Federici and Marcia J. Scherer, this cross-cultural handbook includes contributions from leading experts across five continents, offering a framework for future practice and research.

Viele Menschen werden, auch schon in jüngeren Jahren, durch Verletzungen und Erkrankungen im Bereich des Zentralnervensystems hemiplegisch. Um eine optimale Eingliederung in Familie, Gesellschaft und Beruf zu erreichen, benötigt ein Halbseitengelähmter neben verschiedenen anderen Rehabilitationsmaßnahmen eine zielgerichtete Ergotherapie, die mit den Behandlungsgrundlagen nach Bobath Funktionsverbesserungen der paretischen Seite anstrebt. Durch Hemmung der Spastizität und der pathologischen Haltungs- und Bewegungsmuster werden die sensomotorischen Funktionen wieder ermöglicht und damit Körpersymmetrie, Sensibilität und Körperschema gefördert. Dieser praxisbezogene Leitfaden wurde in erster Linie für die fachspezifische Vertiefung in Ausbildung befindlicher und praktizierender Ergotherapeuten geschrieben. Ärzte, Physiotherapeuten und andere Mitarbeiter in der Rehabilitation bekommen mit diesem Buch einen Einblick in ein Spezialgebiet der Ergotherapie.

Proceedings of the Joint Conference of APCHI 2000 (4th Asia Pacific Conference on Human Computer Interaction, ASEAN Ergonomics 2000 (6th S.E. Asian Ergonomics Society Conference)

In the next millennium, it is anticipated that human factors issues will take centre stage in initiatives targeted at enhancing economic competitiveness and productivity. This development is already discernible in nascent knowledge and digital based industries and economies, which are expected to emerge in force in the near future and continue to dominate thereafter. These developments will establish irreversibly the emerging global economy. The theme of the APCHI 2000 conference is: "Towards a seamless integration of collaborative human computer systems" to reflect the already discernible shift in focus of human computer interaction (HCI). whilst the theme of the ASEAN Ergonomics 2000 conference is: "From user centeredness to people centeredness" to reflect the imminent shift in focus that is required of human factors. The papers in these proceedings provide a good contrast of human factors contributions to both old and new economies that make up ASEAN and APEC. They highlight the diverse roles human factors can play in advancing the quality of life in developed, developing and third world nations. They also serve as a guide to human factors practitioners in old economies on what to expect as their economies develop.
