  • VA RRDC Palo Alto

    Dear Colleagues,

    One of our readers kindly sent me a copy of the 1988 Progress Report of the
    Rehabilitation Research and Development Center at the Veterans Administration
    Medical Center in Palo Alto, CA/USA. It is a well-written survey of work com-
    pleted or in progress during the years 1986 and 1987, and well worth acquiring.
    The main categories in this 200 pp. booklet are:

    The Center (Objectives, Organization, Funding, Personnel, Collaborations)
    Reports (Orthopaedic Biomechanics, Neuromuscular Systems, Human-Machine
    Integration, Student Projects)
    Facilities (RR&D Center, Stanford University)
    Bibliography (Dissertations, Publications, Scientific Presentations, Articles
    and Presentations)

    Additional copies are available on request from: Rehabilitation Research and
    Development Center, VA Medical Center/153, 3801 Miranda Avenue, PALO ALTO, CA
    94304, U.S.A., Tel. +1(415)858-3991, FTS 463-5530.

    P.S.: While talking about Biomechanics and Neuromuscular Systems: some members
    of the ISB (International Society of Biomechanics) may have received a letter
    from the International Society of Electrophysiological Kinesiology (ISEK) to
    consider this latter society, with an invitation to attend its 1990 congress.
    I am curious how this will evolve, with the "First World Congress on Biomecha-
    nics" being held in California at about the same time, and the next ISB Congress
    to take place in Perth/Australia in 1991...
