The latest edition of this classic in the field presents a unique and comprehensive account of the mechanics of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. Written for students and researchers of biomechanics, the book covers key areas including the properties of biomaterials, common measuring techniques and modeling.

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

  • An increase in the number and type of applications across a broad range of disciplines

Biomechanics of the Musculo-skeletal System, Third Edition will prove invaluable for undergraduate students in mechanics and physics; medical students and graduate students in engineering, exercise and sport science and kinesiology; and for all those with an interest in the biomechanical aspects of the human or animal body.
