Book Description

This edited collection of papers presented at the 18th International Symposium of Biomechanics in Sport, highlights cutting-edge research material on sports biomechanics from many of the leading international academics in the field. The thirty-seven chapters presented are divided into nine sections: * biomechanics of fundamental human movement* modelling, simulation and optimisation* biomechanics of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system* sports injuries, orthopaedics and rehabilitation* the application of electromyography in movement studies* biomechanical analysis of the internal load* methods and instrumentation* training* paediatric and geriatric exercise.
