Overview

Muscular Analysis of Everyday Activities is designed to facilitate objective analysis of the performance of daily living. This excellent text provides step-by-step methods to break down activities into their component parts allowing for easier interpretation and analysis of the activity. As each step is presented, examples are given that provides the reader with a model to follow as the reader begins to analyze other activities of daily living. These handy step-by-step procedures include methods of capturing the subject's motions, ways of determining goniometric measurements, ways for determining the best location for body markers, and ways for determining the muscular activity involved. Each chapter concludes with a section on clinical application and discussion questions. Photographs also give students/clinicians a visual reference for understanding and interpreting each activity analyzed.
