  • Book ann.: Restoration of Walking for Paraplegics

    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:
    RESTORATION OF WALKING FOR PARAPLEGICS -- Recent Advancements and Trends.
    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.
