9780306474743: Fundamentals of Biomechanics

Fundamentals of Biomechanics introduces the exciting world of how human movement is created and how it can be improved. Teachers, coaches and physical therapists all use biomechanics to help people improve movement and decrease the risk of injury. The book presents a comprehensive review of the major concepts of biomechanics and summarizes them in nine principles of biomechanics. Fundamentals of Biomechanics concludes by showing how these principles can be used by movement professionals to improve human movement. Specific case studies are presented in physical education, coaching, strength and conditioning, and sports medicine.

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.

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
