About Book

 In order to explore human movement, this book aims to give an introduction text in biomechanics that blends fundamental anatomy, physics, mathematics, and physiology. This strategy was chosen because numerical examples can be meaningful and easily dispel misunderstandings about the mechanics of human movement.Part I: Foundations of Human Movement; Part II: Functional Anatomy; and Part III: Mechanical Analysis of Human Motion comprise the three main divisions of this work. The chapters are arranged in a way that offers a logical progression of information crucial for learning biomechanics and researching human movement.

Chapters 1 through 4 are found in Part I, "Foundations of Human Movement." The vocabulary and nomenclature commonly used in biomechanics are presented in Chapter 1, "Basic Movement Terms." The skeletal system is covered in Chapter 2, "Skeletal Factors for Movement," with a focus on joint articulation.

The organisation of the muscular system is covered in Chapter 3, "Muscular Factors for Movement." Lastly, the control and activation systems for human movement are discussed in Chapter 4, "Neurological Issues For Movement." The foundational information was restructured in this version, and new information was added in areas including physical activity and bone formation, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, factors influencing force and velocity development in the muscles, and the impact of training on muscle activationChapters 5 through 7 of Part II, Functional Anatomy, examine the upper extremity, lower extremity, and trunk, respectively, of the human body.

The general information offered in Part I is integrated into each chapter with regard to each region. To make it easier to study the locations and functions of muscles and ligaments, the information on muscles and ligaments was transferred from the appendix into the chapter text in this edition. To provide examples of typical exercises utilised in each location, the exercise section was rearranged. Finally, a more thorough muscular analysis based on the findings of electromyographic investigations is included in the analysis of selected activities at the end of each chapterChapters 8 through 11 of Part III, Mechanical Analysis of Human Motion, describe quantitative mechanical approaches for the analysis of human movement. The ideas of linear and angular kinematics are discussed in chapters 8 and 9. In these two chapters, conventions for the analysis of angular and linear motion are also covered in detail.

Each chapter includes a review of the research literature on golf, wheelchair locomotion, and human mobility. These exercises serve as examples of the quantitative methods discussed in Part III. The principles of linear and angular kinetics are covered in chapters 10 and 11, together with descriptions of the forces and torques that are applied to the human body every day. There is a list and an explanation of the laws of motion.

Here, the forces and torques exerted on the body's various parts while they are in motion are discussed.

Despite the book's progressive arrangement, the key sections are all on their own. As a result, teachers may remove or lessen the emphasis of some portions.

For instance, Parts I and II might be utilised in a conventional kinesiology course, and Part III might be used in a biomechanics course.
