This introductory text in biomechanics integrates basic anatomy, physics, calculus, and physiology for the study of human movement. Organized into three parts (Foundations of Human Movement, Functional Anatomy, and Mechanical Analysis of Human Movement), this text is considered to be a higher level biomechanics book as it can be used in both upper level undergraduate and graduate courses.

Features include:
  • New coverage of physical activity and bone formation, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, factors influencing force and velocity development in the muscle, and the effect of training on muscle activation
  • New and updated illustrations include applications from ergonomics, orthopedics, and exercise (supplemented with references from the current biomechanics literature)
  • MaxTRAQ motion analysis software that offers students an easy to use tool to track data and analyze various motions selected by the authors. When to go to the software is referenced in the book. The MaxTRAQ software includes: Video clips of a variety of motions such as golf swing and gait
  • 2D Manual tracking
  • Coverage of distance and angles
  • Graphs and charts
  • Student Quizzes and Full text online on
  • Focuses on movement patterns of muscle groups rather than individual muscles so students can understand movement as a whole
  • Section on functional anatomy important for understanding biomechanics Br>
  • Basic mathematics information for students who need a review of mathematics
  • End of chapter summaries recap major concepts presented
  • True/false, multiple choice, and short answer questions to test students' knowledge and comprehension
  • Quick reference appendices present information units of measurement, a review of trigonometric functions, and provide hands-on data
