Targeted Muscle Reinnervation : A Neural Interface for Artificial Limbs, Hardback Book

Targeted Muscle Reinnervation : A Neural Interface for Artificial Limbs Hardback

Edited by Todd A. Kuiken, Aimee E. Schultz-Feuser, Ann K. Barlow

Part of the Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering series

Description

Implement TMR with Your Patients and Improve Their Quality of LifeDeveloped by Dr. Todd A. Kuiken and Dr. Gregory A. Dumanian, targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) is a new approach to accessing motor control signals from peripheral nerves after amputation and providing sensory feedback to prosthesis users.

This practical approach has many advantages over other neural-machine interfaces for the improved control of artificial limbs.

Targeted Muscle Reinnervation: A Neural Interface for Artificial Limbs provides a template for the clinical implementation of TMR and a resource for further research in this new area of science. After describing the basic scientific concepts and key principles underlying TMR, the book presents surgical approaches to transhumeral and shoulder disarticulation amputations.

It explores the possible role of TMR in the prevention and treatment of end-neuromas and details the principles of rehabilitation, prosthetic fitting, and occupational therapy for TMR patients.

The book also describes transfer sensation and discusses the surgical and functional outcomes of the first several TMR patients.

It concludes with emerging research on using TMR to further improve the function and quality of life for people with limb loss. With contributions from renowned leaders in the field, including Drs.

Kuiken and Dumanian, this book is a useful guide to implementing TMR in patients with high-level upper limb amputations.

It also supplies the foundation to enable improvements in TMR techniques and advances in prosthetic technology.
