Books Description :
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 professionsOver 160 figures illustrating real human movementCase studies of actual movement technique examined by professionals in human movementExtensive use of graphs, photographs, illustrations, and citations to important biomechanics literatureGlossary of key terms and biomechanics research terminologyAppendix of instructional lab activitiesEndorsements:'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, CAAbout the Author:Dr. Duane Knudson is Associate Dean and Professor of biomechanics in the Department of Kinesiology at California State University, Chico. He earned his Ph.D. in biomechanics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has published extensively on the biomechanics of tennis and exercise. Dr. Knudson co-authored the first scholarly book on the qualitative analysis of human movement, and his research has earned him fellow status in the American College of Sports Medicine and the Research Consortium of AAHPERD.
