Product Overview

Biomechanics of Human Motion: Basics and Beyond for the Health Professionspresents a straightforward approach to the basic principles, theories and applications of biomechanics and provides numerous techniques and examples for approaching biomechanical situations enhanced by healthcare professionals.

Building on his previous work, Dr. Barney LeVeau uses clearly defined, concise terms and real-life applications rather than advanced mathematics to make teaching and learning biomechanics easier. Based upon the concept of force, the text illustrates how force is applied to the human body and how the body applies force to various objects. The emphasis is upon the pertinent factors that guide the reader to an understanding of biomechanics at a beginning level.

Chapter Topics Include:
? Strength of material such as loading and stress-strain relationships
? Composition and Resolution of Forces such as graphic method and mathematical method
? Equilibrium such as static, first condition and second condition
? Dynamics such as kinematics and kinetics
? Application such as stability and balance, motion analysis, and gait

What?s Inside:
? Simple explanations of biological & mechanical concepts
? Contemporary articles at the end of each chapter providing readers with information beyond the basics
? Over 240 images illustrate biomechanical situations and computations
? User-friendly, uncomplicated mathematical formulas and examples

Biomechanics of Human Motion: Basics and Beyond for the Health Professionsprovides students and clinicians of all allied health professions with a basic background and solid foundation on which to build a solid understanding of force and biomechanics.
