Bioingegneria del sistema motorio

Carlo Albino Frigo

editore: Editori Vari

L’opera tratta con ottica ingegneristica i seguenti argomenti: la conoscenza del sistema motorio, la bioingegneria del movimento, l’analisi e la sintesi del movimento umano. L’obiettivo non è solo quello di fornire allo studente di bioingegneria un’impostazione metodologica atta ad affrontare i numerosi e diversificati problemi che si possono incontrare nello studio del movimento umano, ma anche di fornirgli le conoscenze di base per comprendere le problematiche del settore e dialogare con competenza con colleghi di formazione medica. Da questo punto di vista la trattazione può risultare interessante e formativa anche per medici, fisioterapisti, tecnici ortopedici e preparatori atletici e favorire l’integrazione di competenze multidisciplinari su argomenti che, di fatto, multidisciplinari lo sono.

Fascia: The Tensional Network of the Human Body

The Science and Clinical Applications in Manual and Movement Therapy

Leon Chaitow, Peter A. Huijing
e altri

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 566

This book is the product of an important collaboration between clinicians of the manual therapies and scientists in several disciplines that grew out of the three recent International Fascia Research Congresses (Boston, Amsterdam, and Vancouver). The book editors, Thomas Findley MD PhD, Robert Schleip PhD, Peter Huijing PhD and Leon Chaitow DO, were major organizers of these congresses and used their extensive experience to select chapters and contributors for this book. This volume therefore brings together contributors from diverse backgrounds who share the desire to bridge the gap between theory and practice in our current knowledge of the fascia and goes beyond the 2007, 2009 and 2012 congresses to define the state-of-the-art, from both the clinical and scientific perspective. Prepared by over 100 specialists and researchers from throughout the world, "Fascia: The Tensional Network of the Human Body" will be ideal for all professionals who have an interest in fascia and human movement - physiotherapists, osteopathic physicians, osteopaths, chiropractors, structural integration practitioners, manual therapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, yoga or Pilates instructors, exercise scientists and personal trainers - as well as physicians involved with musculoskeletal medicine, pain management and rehabilitation, and basic scientists working in the field.

ACSM's Advanced Exercise Physiology

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 800

Written at a graduate level, the second edition of "ACSM's Advanced Exercise Physiology" enables experienced students to develop an in-depth understanding of exercise physiology along with its related topics and applications. Both the immediate and long-term effects of exercise on individual body systems are described in detail, and the text emphasizes how each body system's physiological response to exercise is interdependent. Moreover, it examines how these physiological responses are affected by heat, cold, hypoxia, microgravity, rest, and hyperbaria. This second edition features a team of international authors and editors whose expertise spans general physiology, exercise physiology, and research. Together, they have substantially revised, updated, and reorganized the text to incorporate feedback from both instructors and students.

Human Movement

An Introductory Text

Clare Kell, Tony Everett

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 288

The sixth edition of this popular text introducing human movement to a range of readers, offers the building blocks, signposts and opportunities to think about the application and integration of basic Human Movement theory. It confirms basic knowledge which is then applied to specific areas. Drawing on the expertise of a range of authors from the healthcare professions, the new edition has adopted a themed approach that links chapters in context. The strength of this current edition is the explicit chapter integration which attempts to mimic the realities of human movement. The themed approach explores the psychosocial influences on movement. Integration is further facilitated by increased cross-referencing between the chapters and the innovative use of one themed case study throughout. Framed about a family unit, this case study enables chapter authors to explicitly apply the content of their chapters to the real world of human movement. Taken as a whole, this more integrated format will enable readers to see the reality and complexity of human movement.

Introductory Biomechanics

Andrew Kerr

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 166

This is an interactive text ideal for all health and sports professional students who require a basic understanding of the major biomechanical principles they meet in practice, including movement analysis and tissue mechanics. Starting from the point of zero-knowledge, this book presents what can be a very dry and difficult area, in an engaging and visual way using everyday objects to illustrate the principles and linking this to human anatomy and movement. Less time is spent on mathematics and classic mechanics with greater emphasis on how these principles are applied to professional practice. "Introductory Biomechanics" uses workbook-style learning diffusing manageable chunks of theory with learning activities and ultimately making the link back to clinical application. The accompanying CD is closely tied in with the text, containing video clips and real motion analysis data of walking, jumping, cycling and rising from a chair. There are also numerous animations of principles in action. The user is in control of most clips and animations and can change settings and manipulate variables practically showing biomechanics in action. The CD also contains a dynamic quiz drawing randomly from a pool of over 70 questions (MCQs, fill-in-the-blanks, true/false) which also provides feedback and percentage score on completion.

Biomechanical Basis of Human Movement

Joseph Hamill, Kathleen M. Knutzen

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 491

Integrating basic anatomy, physics, calculus, and physiology, this fundamental text offers you a solid introduction to the study of biomechanics. By focusing on movement patterns of muscle groups rather than individual muscles, this text provides you with a holistic understanding of human movement. Chapters are organized into three major parts: Foundations of Human Movement, Functional Anatomy, and Mechanical Analysis of Human Motion. Organized in a logical progression, each chapter begins with basic principles and math concepts and then helps you move on to more advanced concepts and applications. This title presents the following features to help you master biomechanics: New areas of coverage include physical activity and bone formation, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, factors influencing force and velocity development in muscle, and the effect of training on muscle activation. MaxTRAQ motion analysis software offers you an easy-to-use tool to track data and analyze various motions selected by the authors. New and updated examples from sports, ergonomics, orthopedics, and exercise science illustrate the principles of human movement. Highlight boxes draw your attention to and reinforce key concepts and applications. Review questions gauge your comprehension and help you apply the material to real-world problems. This text's quantitative approach, coupled with its many examples and hands-on exercises, enables you to understand the fundamentals of biomechanics.
