Rationale
Rehabilitation engineers design and build devices and systems to meet a wide range of needs that can assist individuals with mobility, communication, hearing, vision, and cognition. These tools help people with day-to-day activities and tasks related to employment, independent living, and education. This course is important and emerging field in biomedical engineering.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire required learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes:

i. Select the appropriate rehabilitation concept for various disabilities.
ii. Compare the different methods of orthopedic prosthetics and orthotics for rehabilitation.
iii. Repair and maintain power wheel chair.
iv. Design and develop orthotic and prosthetic.
v. Select proper sensory augmentation and substitution.
