Book Description :

The ability to walk upright on two legs is one of the major traits that define us as humans; yet, scientists still aren't sure why we evolved to walk as we do. In Born to Walk, author James Earls explores the mystery of our evolution by describing in depth the mechanisms that allow us to be efficient in bipedal gait. Viewing the whole body as an interconnected unit, Earls explains how we can regain a flowing efficiency within our gait--an efficiency which, he argues, is part of our natural design. This book is designed for movement therapy practitioners, physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, massage therapists, and any bodyworker wishing to help clients by incorporating an understanding of gait and its mechanics. It will also appeal to anyone with an interest in evolution and movement. Drawing on recent research from paleoanthropology, sports science, and anatomy, Earls proposes a complete model of how the whole body cooperates in this three dimensional action. His work is based on Thomas Myers's Anatomy Trains model of human anatomy, a holistic view of the human body that emphasizes fascial and myofascial connections. Earls distills the complex action of walking into a simple sequence of "essential events" or actions that are necessary to engage the myofascia and utilize its full potential in the form of elastic energy. He explains the "stretch-shortening cycle"--the mechanism that is the basis for many normal human activities--and discusses how humans take advantage of isometric contractions, viscoelastic response, and elastic recoil to minimize calorie usage. This streamlined efficiency is what enabled our first ancestors to begin to migrate not only seasonally but also permanently to new lands, thereby expanding the natural resources available to us as a species.

Book Description :

The picture on the front cover of this book depicts a young man pulling a fishnet, a task of practical relevance for many centuries. It is a complex task, involving load transmission throughout the body, intricate balance, and eye head-hand coordination. The quest toward understanding how we perform such tasks with skill and grace, often in the presence of unpredictable pertur bations, has a long history. However, despite a history of magnificent sculptures and drawings of the human body which vividly depict muscle ac tivity and interaction, until more recent times our state of knowledge of human movement was rather primitive. During the past century this has changed; we now have developed a considerable database regarding the com position and basic properties of muscle and nerve tissue and the basic causal relations between neural function and biomechanical movement. Over the last few decades we have also seen an increased appreciation of the impor tance of musculoskeletal biomechanics: the neuromotor system must control movement within a world governed by mechanical laws. We have now col lected quantitative data for a wealth of human movements. Our capacity to understand the data we collect has been enhanced by our continually evolving modeling capabilities and by the availability of computational power. What have we learned? This book is designed to help synthesize our current knowledge regarding the role of muscles in human movement. The study of human movement is not a mature discipline.

Book Description :

Dynamic Human Anatomy, Second Edition With Web Study Guide, is back—with a new title, significant new material and learning aids, and the same goals: to cover concepts not found in traditional anatomy texts and to help students apply those concepts. Formerly titled Dynatomy, the new edition of this introductory to upper-level biomechanics and anatomy text sets itself apart from other texts in this field by connecting biomechanical principles with applications in sports and dance, strength training, work settings, and clinical settings. Dynamic Human Anatomy offers applied dance- and sport-specific information on how the body performs dynamic movement, providing students an understanding of the body’s structure and function as it explores the elegance and complexity of the body’s functional movement anatomy. New Tools and Learning Aids Dynamic Human Anatomy comes with many tools and learning aids, including a web study guide and new instructor resources, each featuring new material and tools. The web study guide offers the following: • Tables that indicate articulations for the spine and upper and lower extremities • Tables that list the origin, insertion, action, and innervation for all major muscle groups • Practice problems that allow students to apply the muscle control formula discussed in chapter 6 • Critical thinking questions The instructor resources include: • A presentation package with slides that present the key concepts from the text and can be used for class discussion and demonstration • An image bank that includes the figures and tables from the book to develop a custom presentation • An instructor guide that includes a sample syllabus, chapter summaries, lecture outlines, ideas for additional assignments, and answers to the critical thinking questions presented in the web study guide • A test package that includes 330 questions Dynamic Human Anatomy also offers a full-color design and learning aids that include an updated glossary, chapter objectives, summaries, and suggested readings. Each chapter has Applying the Concept sidebars, which provide practical examples of concepts, and Research in Mechanics sidebars, which highlight recent research in biomechanics and human movement. Organized Into Four Parts Dynamic Human Anatomy is organized into four parts. Part I provides a concise review of relevant anatomical information and neuromechanical concepts. It covers the dynamics of human movement, the essentials of anatomical structure and the organization of the skeletal system. Part II details the essentials of a dynamic approach to movement, including a review of mechanical concepts essential to understanding human movement, the muscle control formula, and topics relevant to movement assessment. In part III, the focus is on fundamental movements as the chapters examine posture and balance, gait, and basic movement patterns. Part IV explores movement-related aspects for strength and conditioning applications, sport and dance applications, clinical applications, and ergonomic applications. Brings Anatomy to Life Dynamic Human Anatomy, Second Edition, explores the potential of the human body to express itself through movement, making it a highly valuable text for students who have taken, or are taking, introductory anatomy and who need a more detailed exposure to concepts in human movement anatomy.

Book Description :

Enhance your OT skills with the only book to focus on activity demands of occupation and the biomechanics of sensory organs! Greene and Roberts’ Kinesiology: Movement in the Context of Activity, 3rd Edition uses a comprehensive, client-centered approach to occupational therapy, including sensory-motor performance skills and socio-cultural contexts related to solving a clinical problem. It covers kinesiologic and biomechanical principles, and shows techniques for producing positive outcomes when clients face challenging activity demands in all areas of occupation. Written by OTs for OTs, this reference helps you learn how to treat clinical diagnoses as personal experiences encountered in real-life situations. Client-focused approach presents information in the same order an OT practitioner would follow to solve a clinical problem, emphasizing kinesiologic and biomechanical principles rather than mathematics and trigonometry. Nearly 300 detailed, colorful illustrations make it easier to understand how human movement relates to occupational performance. Coverage of the entire body shows how biomechanical principles apply to activity demands on the head and trunk, as well as to the upper and lower extremities. Case studies present real-life client situations, allowing you to apply concepts and solve problems. Critical thinking questions, physical activities, and interactive exercises stress clear, conceptual thinking and an understanding of real client situations. Lab Manual for Kinesiology: Movement in the Context of Activity at the back of the book offers hands-on activities including movement of the human musculoskeletal system, wheelchair stability and transfers, sensory receptors, movements of the upper extremities, and positioning of the hip, knee, and ankle. Closer Look boxes examine key topics that are complicated or need further explanation, and add information relevant to practice. NEW! Utilizing the Sensory Environment: Integrating Physics into Sensory Interventions chapter explores how the forces used in the application of hands, tools, or equipment activate the sensory receptor cells, leading to more reliable assessments and outcomes.
