Biomedical Engineering Principles in Sports (Bioengineering Mechanics and Materials: Principles and Applications in Sports (1) Band 1)
Überblick:Synopsis 'Biomedical Engineering Principles in Sports' contains in-depth discussions on the fundamental biomechanical and physiological principles underlying the acts of throwing shooting hitting kicking and tackling in sports as well as vision training sports injury and rehabilitation. The topics include: golf ball aerodynamics and golf club design; golf swing and putting biomechanics; tennis ball aerodynamics and ball; and shoe-surface interactions; tennis stroke mechanics and optimizing ball-racket interactions; baseball pitching biomechanics and perceptual illusions of batters; football forward pass aerodynamics and tackling biomechanics; soccer biomechanics; basketball aerodynamics and biomechanics; vision training in sports; children maturation and performance; and rehabilitation and medical advances in treatment of sports injuries. This book is essential reading for biomedical engineers physicists sport scientists and physiologists who wish to update their knowledge of biomechanical and biomedical principles and their applications to sports. The book can be used in a one-semester Senior or Graduate-level course in Biomechanics Biomedical Engineering Sports Technology Sports Medicine or Exercise Physiology. In addition it will be of value to interested athletic laypersons who enjoy watching or participating in sports such as golf tennis softball football soccer and basketball.
