9780072462043: Basic Biomechanics

Basic Biomechanics provides an introduction to biomechanics using the latest findings from the research literature to support and exemplify the concepts presented. Quantitative as well as qualitative examples of problems illustrate biomechanical principles. Quantitative aspects are presented in a manageable, progressive fashion to make biomechanical principles accessible to all students, regardless of their mathematical skills.

From the Publisher:

New related web sites at the end of each chapter offers pertinent web sources to students.
Updated throughout to incorporate information from the latest research such as the effect of weightlessness on the musculoskeletal system, new information on osteoporosis, and many updates from the motor development literature.
Now includes even more applications from sport, ergonomics, and daily living.
Chapter 1 introduces students to problem solving, each chapter then includes sample problems and two problem sets, one introductory and a second more challenging sets. The text includes an appendix on basic math skills.
Takes an integrated approach with mechanical concepts included in the anatomical chapters (4-9) and anatomical concepts in the biomechanical chapters (10-15). Applications are through out.
Uses American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons joint angle measurement scheme.
Lab experiences/suggestions and ideas are in every chapter.
Strong pedagogy includes key concepts, marginal definitions, sample problems, chapter summaries, Introductory and additional problems, and references.

Incorporates information from the latest research providing students with the latest material on topics such as the effect of weightlessness on the musculoskeletal system, new information on osteoporosis, and many updates from the motor development literature.
More applications from sport, ergonomics, and daily living help students understand that biomechanics is important for everyday life, and not just relevant to elite sports performance.
Chapter 1 introduces students to problem solving; each chapter then includes sample problems and two problem sets, first introductory sets and a second more challenging sets. By introducing mathematical concepts simply and progressing to more difficult levels and by providing support in terms of examples, problems and the appendix on math skills, the text helps students understand this quantitative field.
Takes an integrated approach including some mechanical concepts in the anatomical chapters (4-9) and anatomical concepts in the biomechanical chapters (10-15) providing coverage of the three key areas of anatomical structure, biomechanics and application required by the Biomechanics Academy of AAHPERD.
Use of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons joint angle measurement scheme gives students planning clinical careers such as physical therapy a head start in understanding the medical literature.
Lab experiences/suggestions and ideas in every chapter provide instructors and students with starting points for lab exploration to help students apply theory.
Strong pedagogy includes key concepts, marginal definitions, sample problems, chapter summaries, Introductory and additional problems, and references gives students the tools they need to learn the material.
