By George L. Lucas M.D., Francis W. Cooke Ph.D., Elizabeth A. Friis Ph.D. (auth.)

A PRIMER OF BIOMECHANICS is the 1st quantity of its type to provide the foundations of biomechanics with a hugely medical orientation. Dr. Lucas and his colleagues (specialists in biomechanics) have assembled a pragmatic advisor using case displays to make this very technical and intricate fabric palatable to the orthopaedic resident and practitioner. This "user-friendly" textual content is additional superior via good built-in chapters masking all of the easy fabrics and the newest details of this swiftly evolving box from the viewpoint of its beneficial program. every one case presentation is by way of a close, yet simply comprehensible clarification of the biomechanical ideas concerned and contains protocols for remedy. This quantity is a must have for orthopaedic citizens and practitioners.

He preceded his lifting by doing a series of upper- and lower-body stretches and then started to work on individual muscle groups-first the biceps, then the triceps, then the "pees," then the "lats," and so on. How much force did he generate across the elbow joint by doing a biceps curl with a IS-kg weight? In chapter I, we focused our attention on the effect of forces acting on objects where the lines of action of the forces all passed through a single point. We now expand our analysis to include the situation where the applied forces are of equal magnitude and opposite direction but are parallel, that is, their lines of action do not intersect.
