About the book

Stroke is one of the commonest causes of impairment in ADLs and its rehabilitation includes physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech, and language therapy through a multi-disciplinary team and with the help of mechanical aids. The goal of stroke rehabilitation is to help relearn lost skills. There is a wide variation in severity of stroke ad extent of recovery. An early, focused and coordinated program is key to reap maximal benefits.

This book aims to cover the current trends in physiotherapy that are based on function or task-specific rehabilitation, mirror therapy, and constraint-induced exercises through direct or instrumental activities. Focus is now on balance impairment, vestibular rehabilitation, visual and visuospatial impairments, neurobehavioral deficits, cognitive-perceptual deficits, speech and language deficits, and swallowing impairments. Also, special consideration should be given to discuss pharmaco-therapeutic agents, stem therapy as well as a holistic and multidisciplinary approach with evidence-based research on yoga, meditation, and alternative medicine as an aid in recovery. Technology bases interventions are a newer addition to our armamentarium to tackle this disabling problem.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
