Overview

Instant Notes Sport and Exercise Biomechanics provides a comprehensive overview of the key concepts in exercise and sport biomechanics. The kinematics of motion are reviewed in detail, outlining the physics of motion. Mechanical characteristics of motion, the mechanisms of injury, and the analysis of the sport technique provides a source of valuable information.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Noelle M Parent, BS, ATC (University of Virginia)
Description: This book examines the fundamentals of biomechanics from anatomical motion to measurement techniques. Each section begins with a description of key points that are explained further in the section.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a text for both students and teachers to use. Students are exposed to the fundamentals of biomechanics that can be applied to everyday settings or expanded upon for further research. Teachers have one resource to develop lesson plans and laboratory classes. The objectives are met and this book is needed for entry level curricula for sport and exercise sciences.
Audience: It was written for entry level students and teachers of sport and exercise sciences, such as athletic training, exercise science, physical therapy, and physical education.
Features: The book covers kinematics of motion, movement assessment, and breakdown of movement in common daily activities. Information is provided in thorough definitions, pictorial diagrams, and equations. Multiple avenues are used to deliver information so it can be understood.
Assessment: This would be very useful in helping students understand the basics of biomechanics and could be used as a reference during advanced studies in biomechanics later on. Thorough definitions and explanations of basic concepts appear throughout the book.

Meet the Author

Paul Grimshaw, School of Health Sciences, University of South Australia

Paul Grimshaw trained originally as a mechanical engineer with the Royal Ordnance before completing his degree (1984) and PhD in bioengineering (1989) from the University of Salford, UK. Throughout his 18 year career in academia he has lectured in the subject area of biomechanics at Brunel, Edinburgh and Exeter Universities in the UK. Currently he is working in the School of Health Sciences at the University of South Australia in Adelaide.

His research interests centre on the topics of injury prevention and biomechanical measurement techniques in sport and exercise. To date he has been involved in the publication of over 60 refereed pieces of work in these areas. His current research interests include the mechanical properties of the anterior cruciate ligament and the 3 dimensional analysis of the walking gait of patients following hip replacement. In his teaching career he has acted as external examiner to several institutions and organisations and has taught biomechanics, anatomy and statistics to a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate students in the United Kingdom and Australia.
