About Book

This edition of Orthotics and Prosthetics in Rehabilitation aims to provide the best available evidence for entry-level physical therapy and orthotic/prosthetic students considering options as well as a useful example of clinical decision-making in the context of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary care. Also, we want the book to be a thorough and easy-to-use reference for clinicians who are currently in practise; a tool for their person-centered examination, evaluation, intervention planning, and outcome assessment.

Professionals in the fields of orthotics and prosthetics, physical and occupational therapy, and medicine and surgery make up our contributions. We use this essay as an illustration of the importance of interdisciplinary and collaborative patient care.

Each author of a revised or new chapter in this third edition has done extensive research on changes in technology, examination, and intervention. To improve communication between disciplines, we have included ideas and terminology from the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) of the World Health Organization. The case scenarios have been updated, and successive pertinent questions have been posed to encourage discussion of potential solutions as a template for efficient clinical decision-making.

We chose not to "answer" the questions because we believe that the general principles we present in the text must be appropriately modified to meet individual needs. Instead, we challenge readers to use problem-solving techniques and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different options with their peers.Instead than presenting a strict prescription or care plan, we aim to give people the chance to "practise" the process of making clinical decisions based on the best available evidence. In order to encourage readers to critically evaluate evidence from a variety of sources, integrate this information with their own and others' clinical expertise, and take the individual and family's values and goals into account when making clinical decisions, it is our hope that this approach will provide a practical model.

In order to convey the humanity and value of the people we care for, as in past editions, we have opted to utilise "person first" language.While phrases such as "person with stroke" or "person with amputation" may be more difficult to utter or understand than "patient" or "amputee," we believe that using person-first language is well worth the additional time or effort. We believe that this illustration will aid students and professionals in adopting person-centered care.

The material opens with a series of chapters that provide a basis and background for the care of individuals who could benefit in terms of function and quality of life from orthosis or prosthesis prescription. The purpose of the chapters on exercise prescription for older adults, motor learning and motor control, and evidence-based practise is to apply these concepts to the rehabilitation of individuals utilising an orthosis or prosthesis, and we are confident that those who read them will recognise their relevance. The chapters on the evaluation of the capacity to walk, the processes of manufacture and fitting, and the selection of footwear are pertinent.

The second section of the text explores orthotic design and application, beginning with foot and lower limb, spine, and hand orthoses. We challenge our Preface x Preface readers to consider not only selecting the most appropriate orthosis for individuals with musculoskeletal or neuromuscular system disorders, but also designing a rehabilitation intervention based on motor learning principles that will facilitate the individual's use of the orthoses and ability to participate in activities that are most meaningful to them.

Then, we regard wheelchairs and sitting to be a form of orthosis, designed to increase a person's mobility when functional walking is not possible.

The third section of the text concentrates on the treatment of individuals with amputation, beginning with a discussion of why amputations are performed, followed by care of those at risk of amputation (with an emphasis on prevention), how amputations are performed, and post-operative/pre-prosthetic care. The subsequent chapters provide an overview of prosthetic alternatives and alignment considerations for individuals with partial foot, transtibial, transhumeral, and bilateral amputations. We then discuss basic prosthetic rehabilitation and have included new chapters on advanced abilities for community function and athletics after amputation.

The chapter on children with missing limbs pushes us to use our knowledge of motor, cognitive, and emotional development, as well as family dynamics, into prosthetic rehabilitation. We conclude with chapters on prosthetic options and rehabilitation for individuals with upper extremity amputation. These chapters are intended to provide exposure and "a place to start" rather than mastery of this less frequent, but possibly more specialised aspect of prosthetic and rehabilitative care.

With this third edition of Orthotics and Prosthetics in Rehabilitation, we seek to increase collaboration, mutual respect, and communication among health professionals involved in orthotic or prosthetic rehabilitation, as well as broaden their knowledge base. We believe that collaborative and interdisciplinary care not only enhances clinical practise and education, but also ensures the greatest possible outcomes for the persons for whom we offer rehabilitative care.
