Publication Date: 2014-11-19
Topics covered address automotive, aviation, military and other environments. Field data collection; injury coding/scaling; injury epidemiology; mechanisms of injury; human tolerance to injury; simulations using experimental, complex computational models (finite element modeling) and statistical processes; anthropomorphic test device design, development and validation for crashworthiness applications in topics cited above; and current regulations are covered. Risk functions and injury criteria for various body regions are included. Adult and pediatric populations are addressed. The exhaustive list of references in many areas along with the latest developments is valuable to all those involved or intend to pursue this important topic on human injury biomechanics and prevention.

by Gene A. Logan; Wayne C. McKinney
Call Number: QP303 .L64
Publication Date: 1970-01-01
Distinguishing theory from practice is one trait of the physical educator, but the ability to discreetly combine theory and practice is often the mark of the truly successful. This book is intended to impart a professional understanding of human motion as well as the ability to analyze it. This will facilitate the teaching of neuromuscular skills and the selection of the appropriate exercises and drills to improve performance.
Manual of Structural Kinesiology
by Clem W. Thompsom
Call Number: QP303 .T58
Publication Date: 1984-09-01
The "Manual of Structural Kinesiology" provides a straightforward look at anatomy and its relation to human movement. The text identifies specific muscles and muscle groups and describes exercises for strengthening and developing those muscles. The manual makes information readily available to students through a combination of logical presentation format and concise writing style
Understanding the Scientific Bases of Human Movement
by Barbara Gowitzke; Morris Milner
Experimental Methods in Orthopaedic Biomechanics is the first book in the field that focuses on the practicalities of performing a large variety of in-vitro laboratory experiments. Explanations are thorough, informative, and feature standard lab equipment to enable biomedical engineers to advance from a 'trial and error' approach to an efficient system recommended by experienced leaders. This is an ideal tool for biomedical engineers or biomechanics professors in their teaching, as well as for those studying and carrying out lab assignments and projects in the field. The experienced authors have established a standard that researchers can test against in order to explain the strengths and weaknesses of testing approaches.
Functional Anatomy for Sport and Exercise is a quick reference guide to human musculoskeletal anatomy in its moving, active context. An accessible format makes it easy for students to locate clear, concise explanations and descriptions of anatomical structures, human movement terms and key concepts.
The Hidden Mechanics of Exercise reveals the microworld of the body in motion, from motor proteins that produce force to enzymes that extract energy from food, and tackles questions athletes ask: What should we ingest before and during a race? How does a hard workout trigger changes in our muscles? Why does exercise make us feel good?.
Kinesiology is a system of natural health care that combines muscle testing with the principles of Chinese medicine to assess energy and body function. A touch therapy, it uses a range of gentle yet powerful healing techniques and can be effective in the treatment of many conditions, including allergies, backache, fatigue, emotional difficulties, headaches and skin and bowel problems. This book describes how kinesiology can help with these problems by correcting imbalances found in the different forms of kinesiology assessment.
