Overview

Extensively revised from a successful first edition, this book features a wealth of clear illustrations, numerous worked examples, and many problem sets. It provides the quantitative perspective missing from more descriptive texts, without requiring an advanced background in mathematics, and as such will be welcomed for use in courses such as biomechanics and orthopedics, rehabilitation and industrial engineering, and occupational or sports medicine.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: In this book the authors explain the basic mechanical principles of the workings of the musculoskeletal system.
Purpose: The purpose is to teach biomechanics, using clinical settings, to a general audience who are seeking a better understanding of the workings of the human body. These most worthy objectives are fully met.
Audience: This basic science book is written for orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, rheumatologists, physical and occupational therapists, and athletic trainers. Other musculoskeletal researchers can benefit from reading this work. Both authors had experience teaching this material to medical professionals.
Features: The book is divided into three sections of 15 chapters. Basic concepts and application of mechanics, including system in equilibrium, are covered in the first section. In the second part the methods for analyzing deformation characteristics of materials are explored. The study of moving systems is covered in the third section. In all the sections the material is tied to human functions. Three appendixes cover plane geometry, vector algebra, and calculus. This second edition includes more biomechanical examples and exercise problems.
Assessment: Basic science education is an important requirement for most postgraduate doctoral degrees. For instance, orthopedic residents are expected to know the basic biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system. This book fills an important void in available reading material on the subject. I highly recommend it to orthopedists, orthopedic residents, and other residents involved in the care of patients with musculoskeletal problems.

    A competent statics/solid mechanics textbook

    The other review is pretty harsh but based on truth (although 'filled' with typos is exaggerating things). However, among combined statics/solid mechanics textbooks for BME majors, there aren't any better choices out there that I know of. Fundamentals of Biomechanics doesn't contain near enough problems to solve, and I supplement this text with problems and material from Hibbeler's statics text and his mechanics of materials text (which I've used as a 'recommended' textbook). Fundamentals of Biomechanics can be effective as a 'required' textbook, but in my opinion should always be reinforced/backed with a 'real' mechanics text.

    Fundamentals?

    Fundamentals of Biomechanis is perhaps the worst college textbook I have ever used. The book is filled with typographial errors, many problems unsolvable as written. The book does an extremly poor job explaining examples and the pictures are so vague they might as well not have been included.
