Book Description :

This textbook describes the biomechanics of bone, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. It is rigorous in its approach to the mechanical properties of the skeleton yet it does not neglect the biological properties of skeletal tissue or require mathematics beyond calculus. Time is taken to introduce basic mechanical and biological concepts, and the approaches used for some of the engineering analyses are purposefully limited. The book is an effective bridge between engineering, veterinary, biological and medical disciplines and will be welcomed by students and researchers in biomechanics, orthopedics, physical anthropology, zoology and veterinary science. This book also: Maximizes reader insights into the mechanical properties of bone, fatigue and fracture resistance of bone and mechanical adaptability of the skeleton Illustrates synovial joint mechanics and mechanical properties of ligaments and tendons in an easy-to-understand way Provides exercises at the end of each chapter

Book Description :

Historical folklore indicates that Asklepios (circa 900 BC), the fir~t western doctor of ancient Greece, treated many patients with rheumatic diseases of 1 joints ,2. Later, Hippocrates (circa 400 BC), who claimed to have learned from Asklepios, used the term arthritis in reference to joint diseases: "When the disease of arthritis strikes, acute inflammation and pain attacks the joints of the body ... ". Indeed, arthritic joint disease dates much farther back into antiquity than Asklepios. Many modern anthropologists have noted degenerative joint disease in the fossils of Neanderthal man (archanthropus europeus petraloniensis) and even in those of dinosaurs. More recent scientific studies on joints date back to the work of the great English anatomist Hunter who wrote "The Structure and Diseases of Articular Cartilage" in the Philosophical Transactions of London in 1743. The notion that osteoarthritis results from the wearing away of cartilage was copiously documented by the histological observations of the German physician Ecker in 1843. This idea was further supported by Pommer (1927) who felt that mechanical stresses played important roles in the initiation and propagation of cartilage lesions leading to osteoarthritis. This same conclusion was reached by the assembled distinguished experts at a National Institutes of Health Workshop 3 held in 1986 .

Book Description :

In the first book of its kind, noted biomechanists William Whiting and Ronald Zernicke explore the mechanical bases of musculoskeletal injury to better understand causal mechanisms, the effect of injury on musculoskeletal tissues, and how our current knowledge of biomechanics can contribute to injury prevention. Never before has the broad spectrum of injury mechanics been covered so completely in a single book. From introductory biomechanics to detailed examinations of the mechanical aspects of common injuries, Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injuryprovides a solid foundation for in-depth study. The book includes comprehensive information on -the basic biomechanical concepts of force, stress and strain, stiffness, and elasticity; -the mechanics of joints that are subject to disabling injury; -the structure of connective tissues (bone, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments), which are most often involved in musculoskeletal injuries; and -factors such as age, gender, nutrition, and exercise, which affect the musculoskeletal system's response to force. After providing the reader with a fundamental understanding of tissue structure and function, the authors then proceed with detailed explorations of the mechanisms of common injuries, including -inversion ankle sprains, stress fractures, and other lower-extremity injuries; -rotator cuff tears, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other injuries to the upper extremities; and -concussions, intervertebral disc injuries, and other injuries that afflict the head, neck, and trunk. Packed with more than 300 drawings, photos, and tables, Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injuryis both visually compelling and indispensable as a reference on injury mechanisms.

Book Description :

"Function dictates structure" is a classic paradigm reaffirmed in Wolff's law of the skeletal system. A major question being addressed by current research in biomechanics is whether this doctrine also holds true for the cardiovascular system and connective tissues. Taking a multidisciplinary approach to this question has produced new insights into the sensors, signals, and activators that produce remodeling and functional adaptation in cardiac muscle, blood vessels, and bone, including important new findings on the response of vascular endothelial cells to shear stress. Other work focuses on the extent of remodeling and adaptation processes in tendons, ligaments, and intervertebral discs. Together with two companion volumes, Computational Biomechanics and the Data Book on Mechanical Properties of Living Cells, Tissues, and Organs, this monograph will prove invaluable to those working in fields ranging from medical science and clinical medicine to biomedical engineering and applied mechanics.

Book Description :

Given the strong current attention of orthopaedic, biomechanical, and biomedical engineering research on translational capabilities for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of clinical disease states, the need for reviews of the state-of-art and current needs in orthopaedics is very timely. Orthopaedic Biomechanics provides an in-depth review of the current knowledge of orthopaedic biomechanics across all tissues in the musculoskeletal system, at all size scales, and with direct relevance to engineering and clinical applications. Discussing the relationship between mechanical loading, function, and biological performance, it first reviews basic structure-function relationships for most major orthopedic tissue types followed by the most-relevant structures of the body. It then addresses multiscale modeling and biologic considerations. It concludes with a look at applications of biomechanics, focusing on recent advances in theory, technology and applied engineering approaches. With contributions from leaders in the field, the book presents state-of-the-art findings, techniques, and perspectives. Much of orthopaedic, biomechanical, and biomedical engineering research is directed at the translational capabilities for the "real world". Addressing this from the perspective of diagnostics, prevention, and treatment in orthopaedic biomechanics, the book supplies novel perspectives for the interdisciplinary approaches required to translate orthopaedic biomechanics to today’s real world.

Book Description :

Biomechanics is concerned with the response of living matter to forces, and its study has taken long strides in recent years. In the past two decades, biomechanics has brought improved understanding of normal and patho physiology of organisms at molecular, cellular, and organ levels; it has helped developing medical diagnostic and treatment procedures; it has guided the design and manufacturing of prosthesis and instruments; it has suggested the means for improving human performance in the workplace, sports, and space; it has made us understand trauma in war and in peace. Looking toward the future, we see many more areas of possible development such as: reduction in heart diseases and atherosclerosis improved vascular assist and replacement devices, including a permanent artifical heart enhanced oxygen transport in the lung understanding and control of growth and changes mechanics of neuromuscular control and robotics prevention of joint degeneration permanent total joint replacements prevention of low back pain workplace designs to enhance productivity ambulation systems for the handicapped fully implantable hearing aids improved understanding of the mechanisms for permanent disability injuries identification of factors such as alcohol use and disease influence on impact tolerance improved cellular bioreactor designs mechanics of DNA and its application in biotechnology. * Obviously, the attainment of these prospects will greatly improve the quality of human life and reduce the costs of living. * This list is from a report by the U. S. National Committee on Biomechanics, April, 1985.
