Biomechanics and Exercise Physiology Biomechanics and Exercise Physiology

Whether you are a bioengineer designing prosthetics, an aerospace scientist involved in life support, a kinesiologist training athletes, or an occupational physician prescribing an exercise regimen, you need the latest edition of Biomechanics and Exercise Physiology: Quantitative Modeling. Using numerous worked examples to demonstrate what and when to calculate, this book covers more than the fundamentals of exercise physiology and shows you how to calculate responses magnitudes. The second edition improves upon the first edition with inclusion of numerical examples, homework problems, margin notes, and updated material. The five sections cover the energetics of exercise, biomechanics, circulation, respiration, and thermoregulation. The author explains physiological models, demonstrating the conversion of physiology into quantitative form. Tables of values, diagrams, and figures make this book helpful for estimating magnitudes, determining trends, and illustrating concepts. The book emphasizes quantitative mathematical models if possible and conceptual models when mathematical models are not available. Covering a broad scope of material, the author emphasizes quantitative description as much as possible. The book demonstrates the vast amount of physiological material that can be quantitatively predicted and how to translate this information into applications.


Biomechanics of Sport Biomechanics of Sport

This informative text features current and thorough reviews of the biomechanics of sport for improved performance, etiology, and pre-vention of injuries. Winter sports and aquatics are covered, with an emphasis on developing training programs for ski-jumping, alpine, and cross country skiing. Other sports featured include modeling perspectives in speed skating, swimming, and the mechanics of rowing and sculling. Track-and-field athletics, ball games, weight lifting, and training are examined in terms of perforeman, safety, and re-search methodology. Sports scientists and sports medicine specialists will find this book invaluable.


Applied Biomechanics Applied Biomechanics

APPLIED BIOMECHANICS: CONCEPTS AND CONNECTIONS is comprehensive in coverage and focuses on making connections between biomechanics and other sub disciplines of Exercise Science.

The text also includes a brief review of anatomy.


Clinical Biomechanics of the Lower Extremities Clinical Biomechanics of the Lower Extremities

CLINICAL BIOMECHANICS OF THE LOWER EXTREMITY is a comprehensive text addressing the principles of anatomic and biomechanical development and the clinical application of these principles to disease/disorder management. The emphasis of the book is on practical information applicable to the daily practice of lower extremity care. Topics covered include: the physical examination and the assessment of disorders having a biomechanical basis, casting techniques, prescription writing, orthotic trouble-shooting, splinting and shoe prescription for athletic activity.


Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury

Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury, Second Edition, presents clear, accessible explanations of the biomechanical principles of injury and how injuries affect the normal function of muscles, connective tissue, and joints. Noted biomechanists William Whiting and Ronald Zernicke guide readers through the mechanical concepts of musculoskeletal injuries without heavy emphasis on mathematics. Almost 10 years after the publication of the first edition, this much-needed second edition has been vastly improved. Packed with more than 400 illustrations, including graphs and anatomical art (nearly twice as many as in the previous edition), Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury, Second Edition, is an indispensable reference offering perspectives on and appreciation for the intricacies of injury mechanisms. The text provides a solid foundation for in-depth study with a comprehensive examination of these issues: The mechanical aspects of injury and the concept of injury as a stimulus for beneficial tissue adaptations How injury affects the normal function of the human musculoskeletal system and an examination of arthrology, or joint mechanics Mechanical parameters such as force, stress and strain, stiffness, and elasticity and their application to tissue mechanics and injury How connective tissues respond to mechanical loading and how those tissues are studied to quantify their mechanical behavior Factors such as age, gender, nutrition, and exercise with emphasis on how lifestyle choices might lessen the chance or severity of injury How the principles of mechanical load and overload, use and overuse, level and progression of injury, and the many contributory factors involved in injury combine to form a backdrop for viewing specific musculoskeletal injuries Drawing on the information provided in previous chapters, the final section of the text covers the essentials of injuries of the lower extremity, upper extremity, and the head, neck, and trunk. New to the second edition, special sections titled "A Closer Look" present a detailed analysis of anterior cruciate ligament injuries, rotator cuff pathologies, and concussion. In addition, topics of current concern such as falls in older populations, throwing-related rotator cuff pathologies, and youth-related injuries from carrying backpacks are also discussed. This new edition also employs updated design features to reinforce learning, including the addition of a second color to highlight new sections and special elements. The running glossary provides immediate access to definitions, thereby increasing reading comprehension. The improved index offers a quick-search feature for glossary word definitions, and expanded references provide direction for further study. Additionally, essay questions included at the end of each chapter help readers create logical flows of information pertinent to chapter contents. For instructors, an online instructor guide offers outlines of the topics that students sh...
