This book is a companion text to "Orthopedic Rehabilitation, Assessment, and Enablement" by the same author, but can be used independently. Section 1 serves to illustrate through real-life examples the rehabilitation ideas and principles taught in the companion text, ranging from conditions seen daily by the orthopedic surgeon or primary care physician like knee and hip osteoarthritis or plantar fasciitis; through more challenging conditions like hamstring injury rehabilitation or heterotrophic ossification; to recent paradigm shifts in the management of osteoporosis and new technologies like vertebral fracture assessment using state-of-the-art DXA machines, hypergravity stimulation therapy, and many more.In Section 2, the author introduces the reader to the vast number of applications of computers in orthopedic surgery, with special emphasis on the emerging importance of virtual reality in all aspects of orthopedics, ranging from pre-operative planning, pre-operative surgical practice on virtual patients, and virtual wayfinding and navigation; through intra-operative virtual bone structure modeling to enhance accuracy; to, most importantly, post-operative or non-operative rehabilitation of orthopedic conditions using these new computer techniques. The book ends by stressing the importance of telerehabilitation, an increasingly important tool for ensuring that even patients living in remote rural areas can have the chance to participate in rehabilitation guided by a therapist through the use of a virtual environment and teleconferencing.

There has been very rapid development in computing in recent years and this is now a general trend in the field of orthopedics. In orthopedic trauma, there is much enthusiasm surrounding the use of surgical navigation in musculoskeletal trauma. In light of these developments, the successful first edition of this book has been revised and updated including new information to the original chapter on CAOS (computer-aided orthopedic surgery) and an additional chapter on osteoporosis. A chapter on hip fracture rehabilitation has also become necessary. This updated book provides an excellent resource in trauma for orthopedic residents around the world. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

The book describes the alliance, since the mid-1980s, of the entrepreneurs of the Chinese diaspora with the new locally based industrialisation that reform in China has allowed to flourish in its townships and villages. The synergy between these two derives from the ability of small non-bureaucratic actors on both sides to establish networks based on personal trust and reciprocity, producing a new kind of transformative development-from-below in which established Western and Japanese multinationals have little role.

Affinity to the Chinese culture, personalized social networks and a firm control of ownership and management have often been considered the key ingredients for the success of many diaspora Chinese transnational enterprises in South China and Southeast Asia. In view of the recent Asian crisis and the rapid changes imposed by globalization, scholars are increasingly concerned whether these family-owned Chinese transnational enterprises would survive the challenges in the new millennium. Bringing together a group of scholars and researchers from different fields and disciplines, this volume documents and dissects the dynamics of Chinese transnational enterprises throughout the 20th and into the 21st century. The book begins by clarifying and highlighting the concepts, theories and work in progress that are currently being contested in the discourse on Chinese transnational enterprises. A wide variety of case studies follows, illustrating how Chinese entrepreneurs and their businesses have used their business ties and networks to organise their capital and labour to create new business opportunities, and to restructure their enterprises to adapt to and overcome grave economic and socio-political conditions. Specifically, contributors examine the recent transformation of Chinese transnational enterprises in terms of business structures, modes of operation, style of management and crisis management strategies in the face of increasing internationalization and globalization. The extension of western enterprise into China in the shape of joint ventures is also scrutinised. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
