From the Publisher"I have found this book useful and it will become a valued text on my book shelf. It ought to be in all libraries and physiotherapy departments so that it can be a ready source of basic information for anyone wanting to develop understanding of human functional activity. Undergraduates or postgraduates about to start project work and clinicians wanting to know more about the movement difficulties experienced by their patients will all find the book of use."Physiotherapy, September 1999
book would be a very useful adjunct to a departmental or academic library. Students would find some of the basic descriptions clear to understand and anyone considering research in this area would probably find some of the practical methodological information invaluable. Although the examples are not all strictly sporting functions and the title does not suggest as much, the principles could easily be applied to this field. It also gives more insight into how injury can affect sporting function which is sometimes not covered in similar texts devoted to kinetic and kinematic studies of various sporting activities. In short, I have already found myself looking up information in this book as and when needed in the short time it has been in my hands."Physiotherapy in Sport, November 1999
we should all bear in mind the need to become better clinicians by using evidence based practice based on valid research. It gives a good overview of the subject and is a recommended purchase for those interested in this subject." Paul Johnson MCSP SRP Grad Dip Phys, In Touch, October 1999
primary aim of physical rehabilitation is to manage the problems associated with abnormal functional movement. This includes assessment, treatment and evaluation of the outcome. To carry out these tasks effectively requires understanding functional movement and the ability to measure it. This multi authored book provides the knowledge to apply in clinical settings to contribute to rehabilitation of patients with movement disorders."Aslib Book Guide, November 1999
in a clear reader friendly style by authors who are experts in their fields.
This book provides a good introduction for those about to embark on the study of human movement through practical or theoretical means and would be useful as a source of reference on most library or department shelves."Manual Therapy organisation of the book into the three sections along with the clearly presented tables, diagrams and photographs make the content of the book easy to follow and read. Each chapter is well referenced and a list of suppliers of the described measurement systems is also provided. The book would be a very useful reference text for clinicians, students and the library of physiotherapy schools."New Zealand Journal of Physiotherapy, July 2000
