Biomechanical Basis of Human Movement, Volume 217

Front Cover
Williams & Wilkins, 1995 - Human mechanics - 532 pages
ere is the textbook that makes the connection between functional anatomy, biomechanics, and the realities of exercise, rehabilitation, and sports - focusing on movement patterns of muscle groups rather than individual muscles. Students will appreciate the solid coverage of quantitative and anatomic aspects of human movement, and how the text actively integrates functional anatomy and basic biomechanics. Other features include one specific movement example featured in consecutive chapters for continuity; study questions concluding each chapter coded for three levels of challenge; a glossary after each chapter for quick reference to key terms plus student objectives for clear learning goals, references and suggested readings.
