Rehabilitation medicine is the final care path to improve quality of life for those who sustain impairment, disability, or handicap after illness. Remarkable development and improvement of diagnostic as well as therapeutic skills in recent times have contributed to increasing survival rates. Consequently it also increases demand for rehabilitation for survivors. For rehabilitation professionals, this text will provide current concepts, practical skills, and further research issues in various areas. The contributors of this text not only describe current knowledge, but also stimulate readers to continue developing better rehabilitation skills. This text is not sufficient to cover every rehabilitation issue in one volume. However, we hope the readers will build up more knowledge upon this first edition.
