Praised for its clear writing style and logical organization, Basic Biomechanics provides a sound introduction to human biomechanics for students in kinesiology and allied health fields. The mechanical aspects of human movement and applied anatomy are explained with examples of relevant sport, clinical, and daily living applications. In each successive edition, many of these examples are taken from hot topics in the current biomechanics research literature. The quantitative aspects of biomechanics are presented in a manageable, progressive fashion. In the first chapter, students are given a structured template along with practical advice for approaching and solving both qualitative and quantitative problems. The quantitative and qualitative concepts are reinforced with sets of introductory problems and more advanced problems, along with laboratory exercises. The 9th edition features updated illustrations and coverage of numerous new topics.
