9780113100408: The Human Machine

Viewing the human body as a series of problems in engineering, this book examines the mechanical principles behind breathing, walking, chewing, speaking, swimming, cycling, throwing and so on. With the aid of diagrams, Professor McNeill Alexander explains the principles behind the faults of the human machine such as arthritis and sprains. Using a fresh approach to the musculoskeletal system and all types of movement, this book should be of interest to physiotherapists, occupational therapists, student nurses, orthopaedic nurses, and the interested general reader.
