Bionic Limb Reconstruction

233 Seiten, 1. Auflage, 2021

  • Discusses the entire field of bionic limb replacement from basic science to clinical practice
  • Provides detailed information on the most recent techniques in prosthetic reconstruction of both upper and lower extremities including relevant reconstructive surgical options
  • Written by leading experts
This book presents the latest techniques in amputation rehabilitation and summarizes the most recent research findings in the field of bionic limb reconstruction.

Divided into seven parts written by experts in the field, it provides valuable information on e.g. upper extremity injuries, psychological considerations, prosthetic engineering, and surgical and rehabilitation strategies. Illustrative figures and photos of real-life settings further assist understanding.

This book is of interest not only for plastic surgeons, but also for hand surgeons, orthopedic and trauma surgeons as well as therapists, prosthetists and engineers.
