The combination of text and instructional video material makes Orthotic Design and Fabrication for the Upper Extremity: A Practical Guide a uniquely valuable resource for occupational therapy students, new graduates, and any practioner interested in learning orthothics. PT's who require a foundation will LOVE this book. The first chapters lay the foundational course for orthotic design and detail the anatomical knowledge and background information that is required before molding orthoses on clients. Each chapter explores a specific part of the upper extremity, describes several common clinical diagnoses, and highlights typical orthoses that might be utilized to immobilize and protect it. Together, these chapters communicate core, foundational knowledge for the use of orthoses as an intervention in occupational therapy practice. This is a must have book for anyone who needs to understand orthotic basics and beyond.
