Biomechanics and Exercise Physiology

Front Cover
Wiley, Jan 16, 1991 - Medical - 493 pages
This broad-based overview describes human physiology under the stressful conditions of exercise. Divided into five chapters, it covers general exercise limitations; biomechanics; cardiovascular responses; respiratory responses; and thermal responses. Unique in its presentation, the book incorporates mathematical models as a means of quantifying and integrating physiological and engineering analysis. In addition, the figures and tables all use dual systems of units--the conventional set and the consistent set--which allows readers to see data in either set of units, making it useful for both engineers and health practitioners.
