Fundamentals of Biomechanics: Equilibrium, Motion, and Deformation / Edition 2by Dawn L. Leger
Pub. Date: 05/26/2011
Publisher: Springer-Verlag New York, LLC
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.
