Overview

Thanks to improvements in motion recording technology and computer data processing, real-time, full-body 3D representations of human locomotions are now possible. This book examines 3D analysis of human locomotion and discusses fundamental aspects of functional anatomy, motor control, and neuroscience applied to locomotion. It provides advice on setting up and operating a gait laboratory along with the essentials of instrumentation and the current modeling techniques for estimating muscle forces.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Comprises 19 contributions that explore the principal aspects of functional anatomy, motor control and neuroscience as they apply to locomotion. Topics include gait terminology, joint kinematics, robotics, neural network models, and zero gravity locomotion. Individual chapter topics include real-time motion capture systems, bone position and orientation reconstruction using external markers, inverse dynamics in human locomotion, and simulation of human movement. Intended for biomechanics specialists, physiotherapists, sports scientists, ergonomists, and orthopaedic surgeons. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
