The idea of a manual covering sling suspension therapy initially came to me about 1974 and a few years later I decided to include amputee therapy. The manual provides rough sketches of the techniques which are categorized so that cervical joint, arm and shoulder, lumbar spine joint, hip, knee, foot and ankle injuries as well as amputee therapy are all covered.

Sling supension therapy and amputee therapy are two modalities which have been the practice of therapists and prosthetists to look after. Sling suspension therapy is a well established form of physical therapy since it contributes towards the restoration of joint motions and tissue stretching. The principles explaining the subject of suspension therapy are described in several textbooks, but common to all is a lack of good illustrations accompanied by minimal text. The purpose of the manual SLING SUSPENSION THERAPY is to illuminate and guide.

SLING SUPENSION THERAPY provides a good variety of techniques for sling situations with exercise choice more clearly defined as well as illustrations of the equipment required for these techniques. The manual would not be out of place on the book display or library shelf of every hospital medical library, prosthetic shop, and sports injuries and physiotherapy departments around the world.
