This
text is designed to bridge the gap between the way mechanics
is taught to engineering and physics students and those in kinesiology,
physical education and the rehabilitation sciences. In the past
students who
wanted to study biomechanics in depth had to study mechanics of gears
and
levers with engineers or deal with optics, wave motion and
electrodynamics with
physicists. Here all the mechanics principles are taught with human
movement or
anatomical examples along with the necessary mathematics and physics.
Two
dimensional movements are presented along with the mathematical tools
applicable to handle three-dimensional movements in future courses.
Every
chapter has many numerical problems along with answers to the
odd-numbered
questions.

An
introductory (upper high school or undergraduate university)
text for kinesiology, physical education, physical and occupational
therapy as
well as a reference text for orthopaedic surgery, rehabilitation
medicine and
rehabilitation engineering.
