REHABILITATION AND PHYSICAL MEDICINE. Looking to the future.: April 2010

August 29, 2013 – 01:56

Many advances have occurred in rehab to treat the wounded in wars, especially wars of the United States. This is part of the history of rehabilitation and endures. Enough to consider how best to many of the advances in rehabilitation technology to those achieved by DARPA , the Defense Research Projects Agency Avanced Army of the United States and rehabilitation centers american veterans.

Top facilities a rehabilitation center for veterans in the United States. However, neither the most advanced technology and what is probably the best rehabilitation of the world with all the money invested, pensions and social assistance can solve the problems caused by the war. Often pictures of how I look is rehabilitation in other countries, which organizations, conventions, techniques and technologies are or what they have social support people with disabilities.

On the blog I found some images forhispanos hard, but worth seeing just because at some point someone would not that we saw. and because it gives us an idea of how rehabilitation can be when money is invested in it. This should be the care of people with disabilities caused by traffic accidents or wars and above all prevention, never reach them. Lamenteblemente wars are. I have no pictures of the other side, but I put some things in the entry titled " rehabilitation in Afghanistan "the difference is absolute.

What about the soldiers after going to Iraq?.

Visit the actor [and photos] took place in mid-December 2004.
However, the website ( see link click here ) that promotes the actor's visit shows no striking image that may affect the public about the horrors of this military adventure.

Burn after reading?

2009-01-08 16:57:43 by -

For the third time in eight months, a social scientist with the Army's Human Terrain cultural research program has died.
In early November, while on patrol in an Afghan village, Paula Loyd was doused with a flammable liquid, and set on fire. She suffered second- and third-degree burns over 60 percent of her body. Loyd was rushed to a nearby medical center, where she was treated by a burn specialist. Shortly thereafter, Loyd was evacuated to the military's Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany, and then to Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. But after a two month struggle, she was overcome by her injuries.
