zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Eureka Entertainment to release Klls On Wheels, an original and nuanced dark comedy, as part of its new Montage Pictures range in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 15 January 2018. The second feature film from director Attila Till, Kills on Wheels is an inventive, action-packed coming-of-age story of friendship, loyalty and revenge. Zoli and Barba are inseparable friends and outcasts. Both physically disabled, they live in a rehabilitation facility where life seems rather aimless. Zoli needs life-saving surgery but doesn’t want his absent father to pay out of guilt and pity. Enter Rupasov, a mysterious wheelchair-using man newly released from prison. He quickly adopts the two friends and offers them a chance to make some extra money by helping him in his work. That work, however, is murder. Rupasov is a hitman. Inspired by his own experiences working as a volunteer for disabled people, director Attila Till skilfully blends reality with fantasy as he offers a gentle probe into the lives of those who live on the edge of society. Features: Stunning 1080p presentation (On the Blu-ray), with a progressive encode on the DVD English subtitles 5.1 Surround and Stereo soundtrack options Optional English subtitles Trailer

Collaborative Assistive Robot for Mobility Enha...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In nowadays aging society, many people require mobility assistance. Sometimes, assistive devices need a certain degree of autonomy when users' disabilities difficult manual control. However, clinicians report that excessive assistance may lead to loss of residual skills and frustration. Shared control focuses on deciding when users need help and providing it. Collaborative control aims at giving just the right amount of help in a transparent, seamless way. This book presents the collaborative control paradigm. User performance may be indicative of physical/cognitive condition, so it is used to decide how much help is needed. Besides, collaborative control integrates machine and user commands so that people contribute to self-motion at all times.Collaborative control was extensively tested for 3 years using a robotized wheelchair at a rehabilitation hospital in Rome with volunteer inpatients presenting different disabilities, ranging from mild to severe. We also present a taxonomy of common metrics for wheelchair navigation and tests are evaluated accordingly. Obtained results are coherent both from a quantitative and qualitative point of view.

On Silver Wings
12,90 CHF *

Kristin had everything-her own home, an exciting career, fulfilling volunteer work-in an instant that all changed. She went for a bike ride, but woke up a week later on life support, her life forever altered. In August 2010 an inattentive driver sent her and her bicycle flying into a ditch, and this independent professional was reduced to being totally dependent on others. Medical professionals, family, friends, colleagues, and cats all played their parts in her recovery. Even her beloved touring bike Silver was recovered and reconstructed. On Silver Wings: A Life Reconstructed is the story of one woman's struggle to face her changed life, and rebuild it on her own terms. Kristin Noreen picked up the pieces and reassembled them into something new, a bit different, but still her own. The journey taught her some surprising lessons about disability and the hardships we all face. It was not just about physical rehabilitation, but about living in her changed body and building a life that was more than just surviving. This story speaks of resilience with grace and humor, the will to regain strength, and the freedom of movement. Today Kristin is bicycle touring again. And you? What if the rules had changed and you didn't have the same range of choices you once did? If you faced your own death and got a second chance, what would you change about your life?

Ladies of Lost Causes

In this highly original study, Judith Rumgay evaluates the development of a residential programme for female offenders run by the Griffins Society. The text is unique in that it documents the radical contribution of women philanthropists and practitioners to offender rehabilitation. Drawing on archival, interview, and observational sources, the author describes, analyses, and evaluates a distinctive model of care provision by volunteer, upper-middle-class women that has since been overtaken by the professionalization of the voluntary sector. Rumgay illuminates the pathways of women into, and out of, serious crime; explores the dynamics of rehabilitative practice in the volatile setting of residential care; and also analyses the qualities of successful rehabilitative practice. Subsequently, the author suggests rehabilitative success is more appropriately understood within a paradigm of natural desistance from crime, instead of the more common appeal to a medical model of treatment. Moreover, this style of rehabilitative practice is inextricable from the broader social outlook of a dedicated group of philanthropic women, whose critics derided them with epithets such as 'Lady Bountiful'.
