Enhance your OT skills with the only book to focus on activity demands of occupation and the biomechanics of sensory organs! Greene and Roberts' Kinesiology: Movement in the Context of Activity, 3rd Edition uses a comprehensive, client-centered approach to occupational therapy, including sensory-motor performance skills and socio-cultural contexts related to solving a clinical problem. It covers kinesiologic and biomechanical principles, and shows techniques for producing positive outcomes when clients face challenging activity demands in all areas of occupation. Written by OTs for OTs, this reference helps you learn how to treat clinical diagnoses as personal experiences encountered in real-life situations.
