Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles also contains numerous special features that facilitate readers' comprehension of the topics presented. More than 300 illustrations and accompanying explanations provide an extensive visual representation of muscle biomechanics. Refresher sidebars offer brief reminders of mathematical and biomechanical concepts, and From the Literature sidebars present practical examples that illustrate the concepts under discussion. Chapter summaries and review questions provide an opportunity for reflection and self-testing, and reference lists at the end of each chapter provide a starting point for further study.

Biomechanics of skeletal muscles as well as injuries are described in this book in a sophisticated and comprehensive way. It talks about different approaches of Injury and Skeletal Biomechanics. It focuses on the perspectives of force, motion, kinetics, kinematics, deformation, stress and strain examined in various matters like human muscles and skeleton, gait, injury and risk evaluation in a particular situation. The book discusses a myriad of different matters from image processing to articular cartilage biomechanical characteristics, gait behavior in varied situations, and training, to musculoskeletal and wound biomechanics modeling and risk estimation to motion preservation. This book will prove to be of great value to learners and practitioners who want to use it to change and evolve advanced graduate courses and school level teaching in biomechanics.

Skeletal Muscle Mechanics: From Mechanisms to Function summarises the variety of approaches used by today's scientist to understand muscle function and the mechanisms of contraction. This book contains research by leading scientists from numerous fields using many different scientific techniques. Topics covered include: * Cellular and molecular mechanisms of skeletal muscle contraction * Historical perspective of muscle research * The newest developments in techniques for the determination of the mechanical properties of single cross-bridges * Theoretical modelling of muscle contraction and force production * Multifaceted approaches to determine the in vivo function of skeletal muscle This state-of-the-art account is written by internationally recognised authors and will be a valuable resource to researchers of biomechanics in sports science and exercise physiology. "I expect this book to be excellent and timely." Professor R. McNeill Alexander FRS, School of Biology, University of Leeds, UK

Kinesiology is a comprehensive textbook on kinesiology, or the study of movement. Chapters are organized by body region, and each includes a review of functional anatomy and biomechanics, with application and discussion of locomotion and pathokinesiology. Designed for physical therapy, occupational therapy, exercise physiology, and any other area that studies kinesiology. Now every copy of Carol A. Oatis's Kinesiology: The Mechanics and Pathomechanics of Human Movement is packaged with a new three-dimensional anatomy CD-ROM from Primal Pictures. Instructors: There are free online instructor and student resources on the book's companion Website. For more information and to request your review copy, visit http: //connection.lww.com/go/oatis.

The picture on the front cover of this book depicts a young man pulling a fishnet, a task of practical relevance for many centuries. It is a complex task, involving load transmission throughout the body, intricate balance, and eye head-hand coordination. The quest toward understanding how we perform such tasks with skill and grace, often in the presence of unpredictable pertur bations, has a long history. However, despite a history of magnificent sculptures and drawings of the human body which vividly depict muscle ac tivity and interaction, until more recent times our state of knowledge of human movement was rather primitive. During the past century this has changed; we now have developed a considerable database regarding the com position and basic properties of muscle and nerve tissue and the basic causal relations between neural function and biomechanical movement. Over the last few decades we have also seen an increased appreciation of the impor tance of musculoskeletal biomechanics: the neuromotor system must control movement within a world governed by mechanical laws. We have now col lected quantitative data for a wealth of human movements. Our capacity to understand the data we collect has been enhanced by our continually evolving modeling capabilities and by the availability of computational power. What have we learned? This book is designed to help synthesize our current knowledge regarding the role of muscles in human movement. The study of human movement is not a mature discipline.
