Biomechanical Evaluation of Movement in Sport and Exercise offers a comprehensive and practical sourcebook for students, researchers and practitioners involved in the quantitative evaluation of human movement in sport and exercise. This unique text sets out the key theories underlying biomechanical evaluation, and explores the wide range of biomechanics laboratory equipment and software that is now available. Advice concerning the most appropriate selection of equipment for different types of analysis, as well as how to use the equipment most effectively, is also offered. The book includes coverage of: Measurement in the laboratory and in the field Motion Analysis Using Video and On-Line Systems Measurement of Force and Pressure Measurement of Muscle Strength using Isokinetic Dynamometry Electromyography Computer Simulation and Modelling of Human Movement Data Processing and Data Smoothing Research Methodologies Written and compiled by subject specialists, this authoritative resource provides practical guidelines for students, academics, and those providing scientific support services in sport science and the exercise and health sciences.
