Biomechanics of the Upper Limbs: Mechanics, Modeling, and Musculoskeletal Injuries
Andris FreivaldsISBN: 0748409262;
Book DescriptionThe repetitive tasks of various forms of manual work can lead to cumulative trauma disorders, increasing staff burn-out rates and the number of sick-days taken by employees. Interest in upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders has grown as the service sector has claimed a larger share of the workforce. The need for an up-to-date student text has arisen, combining the basic biomechanics with the more practical bioengineering issues and taking a different line to the more general introductions to cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs) and medical management related books currently on the market. Biomechanics of the Upper Limbs: Mechanics, Modelling and Musculoskeletal Injuries focuses on the upper extremity, the musculoskeletal components, their models, and the measurement and prediction of injury potential. Advanced undergraduates, graduate students and professionals should find it provides an excellent basic grounding to the subject.
