9780415632669: Biomechanical Evaluation of Movement in Sport and Exercise: The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences Guide, 2nd edition (BASES Sport and Exercise Science)

Now in a fully updated and revised new edition, this is still the only up-to-date, practical guide to the use of technology in sport and exercise biomechanics. It includes detailed explanations of the key theory underlying biomechanics testing and measurement, along with advice concerning choice of equipment and using equipment effectively.

The second edition includes two completely new chapters, on qualitative movement analysis and the assessment of movement coordination, and covers every key functional area in the biomechanics curriculum, including:

  • motion analysis using video and on-line systems
  • measurement of force and pressure
  • measurement of power using isokinetic dynamometry
  • electromyography
  • computational simulation and modelling of human movement
  • research methodologies
  • data processing

Published in association with the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES), the book includes contributions from world leading researchers and pioneers in the field of sport and exercise biomechanics. Biomechanical Evaluation of Movement in Sport and Exercise is a must-have text for all biomechanics laboratories and for any student undertaking a research project or taking a course in methods, measurement or analysis in biomechanics.

About the Author:

Carl J. Payton obtained his PhD in biomechanics from Manchester Metropolitan University, UK in 1999 where he now a Reader and leads the biomechanics and long term conditions research group. Carl's main research interests are in the biomechanical determinants of elite swimming performance and in the classification of physically impaired swimmers for competition. He has provided biomechanics support to the GB Para-Swimming team since 2000. Carl has previously been Biomechanics Section Chair and member of the BASES Executive Committee Adrian Burden began his career at Brunel University before moving to Brighton University and then to Manchester Metropolitan University in 2002. He obtained his PhD in surface electromyography in the same year and is currently Acting Head of the Department of Sport and Exercise Sciences. Adrian is also a Reader in Biomechanics and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. His main interests lie in the application of electromyography to exercise, clinical and sport settings, and he has run workshops for BASES in this area
