About this item

Each new print copy includes the Navigate Companion Website which includes a variety of learning tools .The second edition of Biomechanics: A Case-Based Approach emphasizes the comprehension, retention, and application of the core concepts of biomechanics through the use of problem-based learning strategies. The author utilizes a student-centered approach by deploying a conversational writing style, tying new concepts to everyday experience, and emphasizing concepts over computation. A wide variety of pedagogical features aid this approach, with Section Questions, Competency Checks, and various boxed features serving to reinforce the content.Biomechanics: A Case-Based Approach is organized into 18 lessons that cover the three levels of biomechanical analysis: whole body, joint, and tissue. Rather than moving from one level to the next, the author deploys a "whole-part-whole" organization in which mechanical principles are described at the whole-body level, followed by relevant discussion of the basic material mechanics of biological tissues and unique properties of the muscle-tendon complex.Key Features:- NEW - Process Boxes illustrate the link between inputs and outputs, providing a visual depiction of the underlying mechanics.- NEW - Nine detailed case studies have been added throughout the text, with a summary of all nine cases presented in the final lesson.- EXPANDED - The use of vector diagrams has been greatly expanded in the Second Edition to help students better visualize key material.- KEY - Section Questions open each major section and present salient questions addressing the focus of the section.- KEY - Competency Checks ask students conceptual and quantitative questions to assist in gauging their understanding of the material.- KEY - Essential Math boxes provide a review of mathematical concepts.- KEY - Applied Research boxes provide examples that are helpful in illustrating biomechanical concepts and present evidence of the practical value of biomechanics.
