Product Description


"This excellent book written by the most prominent authors in the field is a must have for all professionals in this field." (The Applied Ergonomics International News)

From the Publisher

Reflecting the authors' more than 35 years of combined experience in applying biomechanics in various industries, it presents a comprehensive and accessible examination of the widely scattered literature in this field. As such it explores the biomechanical principles both in the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders in industry and working conditions and worker performance in general. This Second Edition reflects the tremendous amount of rapidly emerging knowledge that has taken place since the publication of the earlier volume with a balance struck between introducing new findings and keeping it simple and of a reasonable size. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

First Sentence
In their 1980 book, Frankel and Nordin defined the general field of biomechanics as follows (p. ix): Biomechanics uses laws of physics and engineering concepts to describe motion undergone by the various body segments and the forces acting on these body parts during normal daily activities. Read the first page

HASH(0xa1f3198c) out of 5 stars Inaccessible April 6 2011
By Randy Davenport - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book was surprisingly difficult to extract information from. I found it a great challenge to read through a section and determine what the authors' intended message was. It is quite probably my least favorite textbook ever purchased.

HASH(0xa1d1fa44) out of 5 stars Biomechanics for ergonomics and occupational health Aug. 13 2010
By Seo Lab - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book covers a wide range of topics from basic musculoskeletal structures and physiology to anthropometry data and biomechanical analysis of loading on tissues for various physical activities. Yet, the book is concise enough to be useful as a starter reading material for beginning biomechanists, and as a textbook for a graduate-level intro-biomechanics course. The book also covers ample topics on application of biomechanical principles to ergonomics and occupational health.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Decent book. If you're an ergonomist, it's definitely worth the investment. I've been told there are not too many differences between the 3rd and 4 th editions.
