Biomechanics handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Biomechanics of the Musculo-Skeletal System
Third edition
edited by Benno M. Nigg

Biomechanics of the Musculo-Skeletal System, Third edition is a well organized and authoritative book providing a comprehensive account of the mechanics of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system.

Covering the key areas including the properties of biomaterials, common measuring techniques and modelling, Biomechanics of the Musculo-skeletal System, Third edition also integrates historical aspects thus building a bridge between old and familiar knowledge and the latest developments in biomechanics.

As with the previous edition there are numerous applications and extensive questions and answers at the end of sections. Specific changes for this edition include:

  • Major revision of the section on biological materials including bone, cartilage, ligament, tendon, muscle and joints and new discussion of failure and healing
  • Extensive updating of material covering force, pressure distribution, optical methods and simulation
  • Increase in the number and type of applications across a broad range of disciplines

Biomechanics of the Musculo-skeletal System, Third edition is a valuable resource for all professionals and researchers concerned with biomechanical aspects of the human or animal body
