Basic Biomechanics provides balanced coverage of anatomical structure, biomechanics, and applications, as recommended by the Biomechanics Academy of AAHPERD. Numerous applications from sport, ergonomics, and daily living-both qualitative and quantitative—help demonstrate the relevance of biomechanical principles beyond elite sports performance and into everyday life. The quantitative aspects of biomechanics are presented in a manageable, progressive fashion, and a mathematics appendix helps make the material accessible to all students, regardless of mathematical skill level.
