9781441964977: Fundamentals of Biomechanics

Blending up-to-date biomechanical knowledge with professional application knowledge, this second edition presents a clear, conceptual approach to understanding biomechanics within the context of the qualitative analysis of human movement. It develops nine principles of biomechanics, which provide an applied structure for biomechanical concepts, and the application of each principle is fully explored in several chapters. The book also offers real-world examples of the application of biomechanics, which emphasize how biomechanics is integrated with the other subdisciplines of kinesiology to contribute to qualitative analysis of human movement.

From the Back Cover:

Fundamentals of Biomechanics 2nd edition introduces the exciting world of how human movement is created and how it can be enhanced.  The book presents a comprehensive review of the major concepts of biomechanics and summarizes them in nine principles of biomechanics.  Throughout the text are numerous examples of applying these principles to the work of kinesiology professionals.  Specific case studies are presented in four application chapters: physical education, coaching, strength and conditioning, and sports medicine.  This text presents a clear, conceptual understanding of biomechanics and is designed to help students link their personal experience to biomechanical concepts.  Biomechanics instructors, researchers, and other professionals helping people to improve movement and decrease the risk of injury, as well as advanced students learning biomechanical principles in biomedical engineering, ergonomics, kinesiology, physics, and sports physiology will find Fundamentals in Biomechanics 2nd edition invaluable.
Key Features:
Detailed examples of biomechanical principles and their application in the qualitative analysis of human movement in a variety of professions
Over 160 figures illustrating real human movement
Case studies of actual movement technique examined by professionals in human movement
Extensive use of graphs, photographs, illustrations, and citations to important biomechanics literature
Glossary of key terms and biomechanics research terminology
Appendix of instructional lab activities
Endorsements:
"Fundamentals in Biomechanics delivers everything it promises, and more.  The challenge of teaching and learning biomechanics is understanding the two distinct fields that it comprises - biology and mechanics.  In my experience, some students enter biomechanics with aptitude and interest in one of these fields and reluctance to the others.  As a leader in biomechanics, Dr. Knudson seems to realize this and does an expert job of teaching these two fields in separate parts of the textbook.  The text is clearly written, and includes many helpful illustrations and examples."
Glenn S. Fleisig, Ph.D., Smith and Nephew Chair of Research, American Sports Medicine Institute, Birmingham, AL
"Fundamentals of Biomechanics is a wonderful and comprehensive treatment which meets the needs and interest of both students and educators!  The text addresses the subject cohesively and solidly in a technical, yet very readable and effective manner...I'll use this text in my own summer course and recommend it to colleagues."
Jani Macari Pallis, Ph.D., International Sports Engineering Association, San Francisco, CA
