Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0419248102, Hardcover)

This advanced text is the companion volume to Introduction to Sports Biomechanics, also written by Roger Bartlett. Focussing on third year undergraduate and postgraduate topics the text explores sports injury in relation to biomechanics.

Part One presents a detailed examination of sports injury, including the properties of biological materials, mechanisms of injury occurrence, risk reduction, and the estimation of forces in biological structures.

Part Two concentrates on the biomechanical enhancement of sports performance and covers in detail the analysis of sports technique, statistical and mathematical modelling of sports movements, and the feedback of results to improve performance.

Each chapter feature an introduction, summary, references, example exercises and suggestions for further reading, making this an invaluable textbook for students who wish to specialize in sports biomechanics or sports injury and rehabilitation.
