The only kinesiology book written by occupational therapy practitioners for the occupational therapy assistant is back with the Third Edition.

Kinesiology for the Occupational Therapy Assistant: Essential Components of Function and Movement, Third Edition approaches the study of kinesiology by connecting function to the underlying components that make movement possible.

This text uses a top-down approach to showcase the functional level of a client and then guides the reader to ascertain what fundamental kinesiological functions may be causing limitations or decreased engagement in daily activities. Occupational profiles introduce occupational therapy assistant students to real-life patients and describe occupational therapy treatment and patient outcomes. The reader will gain insight into the practice of occupational therapy through solving problems and developing questions needed to assist the client to achieve movement-related goals in tasks, activities, and occupations.

What's included in the Third Edition:
* Updates to reflect AOTA's model curricula for basic sciences and the OTPF-4.
* Chapters on kinesiology and therapeutic exercise as well as functional mobility in the home and community.
* Emphasis on function and identification of how and why movement occurs.
* Select standardized tests, pinch and grip strength, and range of motion norms are noted where appropriate.

Included with the text are online supplemental materials for faculty use in the classroom.

Kinesiology for the Occupational Therapy Assistant: Essential Components of Function and Movement, Third Edition is a one-of-a-kind text that will enable occupational therapy assistant students to identify the underlying components that make movement possible.
