This Biomechanics of Human Movement textbook is designed for use with advanced undergraduate students and entry level graduate students. The following topics are considered in considerable depth: Linear Kinematics, Linear Kinetics, Angular Kinematics, Angular Kinetics and Fluid Mechanics. The text is extensively illustrated (670 illustrations) and integrated with two supplementary software programs:
The BHMViewer software provides assess to animated color illustrations, slow motion and stop action video clips, and interactive questions.
The Kinematic Analysis software provides the tools needed for a complete video analysis of human movement. This research software is tied to the textbook through computer based laboratory exercises that reinforce the critical concepts presented in the text.
The courseware is available through a “Laboratory-Support” distribution plan (see www.kavideo.sfsu.edu).
