Wolters Kluwer, 2017 - 660 Seiten
This innovative and easy-to-understand book is the only resource available today that bridges the gap between current and emerging motor control research and its application to clinical practice.

KEY FEATURES : - A practical framework for understanding and examining patients prepares you for effective, evidence-based practice. - Online video case studies linked to the text examine motor control deficits in different types of neurologic pathology (including stroke, cerebellar pathology, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's disease) as well as in balance-impaired elders. - Boxed Laboratory Activities give you hands-on practice in applying what you've learned. Answers appear at the end of the chapter. - In-text learning aids, including Learning Objectives, point-by-point Summaries, and answers to Lab Activity Assignments, reinforce your understanding of key concepts. - Extended Knowledge boxes provide in-depth material for more advanced students and practitioners.
