Dear Biomch-L readers,

On 27 February, I posted an announcement about the European Society for
Engineering and Medicine. Today, I received its second Newsletter from
the European Community offices in Brussels, with some book announcements.
My congratulations to Prof. U. Faust in Stuttgart, Biomch-L subscriber
and ESEM Secretary-General / Newsletter Editor, with his success in per-
suading the EC to distribute this material!

Enclosed were two flyers on EC publications; in one of them, the following
book was announced:

Antonio Pedotti & Maurizio Ferrarin (Eds), Centro di Bioingegneria, Milano/I:
1992, 387 pp., soft cover, ISBN: 90 5199 094 4
Price: NLG 175, GBP 55, US$ 95 (*)

This reference is the result of the CEC COMAC BME Concerted Action
Mobility Restoration for Paralysed Persons, in which walking restoration
was a key topic.
Leading international experts are addressing interdisciplinary topics
like pathophysiology of posture and gait, quantitative assessment of gait,
and stimulation and control strategies.
This work brings up-to-date the main findings and current R&D in Europe
on walking restoration for paraplegic patients, ranging from pure mechanical
devices to functional electrical stimulation and hybrid systems.
