Abstract

The coupling of several areas of the medical field with recent advances in robotic systems has seen a paradigm shift in our approach to selected sectors of medical care, especially over the last decade. Rehabilitation medicine is one such area. The development of advanced robotic systems has ushered with it an exponential number of trials and experiments aimed at optimising restoration of quality of life to those who are physically debilitated. Despite these developments, there remains a paucity in the presentation of these advances in the form of a comprehensive tool. This book was written to present the most recent advances in rehabilitation robotics known to date from the perspective of some of the leading experts in the field and presents an interesting array of developments put into 33 comprehensive chapters. The chapters are presented in a way that the reader will get a seamless impression of the current concepts of optimal modes of both experimental and ap- plicable roles of robotic devices.

Abstract

Mit dem practical turn in der Wissenschaftsforschung avancierte das Experiment zu einem vielbeachteten Gegenstand historischer und wissenssoziologischer Untersuchungen. Eines wurde bislang jedoch weitestgehend ausgeblendet: der medizinische Menschenversuch. Dieses Buch widmet sich der Experimentalisierung des Menschen, indem es anhand der Syphilisforschung nachzeichnet, wie der Frauenkörper zu dem »Ding« (Hans Jonas) des Experiments wurde: Welche politischen Leitideen, welche gesellschaftlichen Projekte, welche literarischen Phantasien manifestierten sich in den Menschenlaboratorien des 19. Jahrhunderts?

Abstract

What implications are applications of new genetic technologies in biomedicine having on social identity in today’s society? New Genetics, New Identities, a wide-ranging multi-disciplinary volume in the CESAGen Genetics & Society Book series, presents not only theoretical reflection but also empirical case studies drawn from an international array of authors. Including the highly controversial areas of reproductive technologies and use of human embryos in biomedical research, other key features include: a fresh analysis of a wide-range of social and political concerns in the development of new social identities examinations of the social implications of identity formation as a result from advances in genetic technologies from a number of perspectives both locally and globally resources of a wide range of social science disciplines to discuss significant sociological, anthropological, political and ethical issues. This superb collection is an essential informative read for postgraduates and academics in the fields of sociology, anthropology and scientific technologies giving a comparative approach to complex issues surrounding the social implications of these advances in a period of rapid social change.
