The hand is a complex organ of delicate repair. Whether injured by trauma or illness, its rehabilitation, an integral part of the therapeutic arsenal, is essential to return to functionality. Hand and wrist rehabilitation presents the work of the members of the GEMMSOR (Study group for the hand and upper limb in orthotics and rehabilitation) and transcribes the know-how and knowledge acquired through several decades of experience. The 41 chapters of the book describe in a thoughtful and methodical way the most recent areas of rehabilitation:

  • functional anatomy presented in an innovative way: muscular architecture anatomical continuity;
  • basic techniques resulting from experience: assessment clinical examination scars active techniques muscle strengthening orthotics...;
  • rehabilitation: fractures sprains ligament injuries special cases...

Each exposed theme opens up future prospects enriched by the constant evolution of hand surgery. The surgeon-physiotherapist couple is always valued with a view to a common desire to question themselves in the face of the daily difficulties of injured patients.

This book is a reference for re-educators (physiotherapists, occupational therapists, orthotists, orthotists), physical medicine doctors, surgeons, students in masso-kinesitherapy, occupational therapy and those preparing for the orthopedist-orthotist diploma.

More than 40 GEMMSOR collaborators, certified occupational therapists, orthotists, as well as surgeons and teachers, contributed to the writing of this book.
