Newswise — The latest issue of JRRD, Volume 50, Issue 10, is now available at http://www.rehab.research.va.gov/jour/2013/5010/contents5010.html. Helping Veterans with traumatic or acquired brain injuries or early-stage dementia follow a plan of care while functioning away from a VA setting is an important step in returning them to independent living. A wrist-watch like device, developed as part of the Smart Home project underway at the VA hospital in Tampa, provides timely prompts and reminders to the wearer to perform everyday tasks such as taking medications and keeping appointments. Other topics include issues related to post-deployment behavior, design and function or wheelchairs, and performance measures for orthotics and prosthetics. Just a reminder that the JRRD At a Glance section is available online in English, Spanish, and Traditional and Simplified Chinese!
