Meaningful Motion: Biomechanics for Occupational Therapists
Meaningful Motion covers biomechanical and motor control principles and provides examples that address combining the principles of kinesiology with clinical occupational therapy practice. The text also has case studies and laboratory exercises specifically designed for occupational therapy students. The focus is on the concepts of kinesiology and excludes some of the mathematics that is used by biomechanists. Written by a kinesiologist who is also an occupational therapist, the text is tailored to the needs of the undergraduate and the practicing occupational therapist. Principles of kinesiology are combined with clinical practice. Includes case studies and laboratory exercises that have been specifically designed for occupational therapists. Focuses on concepts used in day-to-day practice. Discusses environments in which therapists work, including balance training, ergonomics, and leisure
