This introductory text in biomechanics integrates basic anatomy, physics, calculus, and physiology for the study of human movement. Organized into three parts (Foundations of Human Movement, Functional Anatomy, and Mechanical Analysis of Human Movement), this text is considered to be a "higher" level biomechanics book as it can be used in both upper level undergraduate and graduate courses. NEW TO THIS EDITION: New coverage of physical activity and bone formation, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, factors influencing force and velocity development in the muscle, and the effect of training on muscle activation New and updated illustrations include applications from ergonomics, orthopedics, and exercise (supplemented with references from the current biomechanics literature)
