Description Introductory Biomechanics is a new, integrated text written specifically for engineering students. It provides a broad overview of this important branch of the biomechahics growing field of bioengineering.
Introductory Biomechanics by Ethier | Rent |
A wide selection of topics is presented, ranging from the mechanics of single cells to the dynamics of human movement. No prior biological knowledge is assumed and in each chapter, the relevant anatomy and physiology are first described. The biological system is then analyzed from a mechanical viewpoint by reducing it to its essential elements, using the laws of mechanics and then tying mechanical insights back to biological function.
This integrated approach provides students with a deeper understanding of both the mechanics and the biology than from qualitative study alone. The text is supported by a wealth of illustrations, tables and examples, a large selection of suitable problems and hundreds of current references, making it an essential textbook for any biomechanics course.

Illustrations are of excellent quality and rich in content.
This text will inspire many students of traditional engineering areas to think of biomechanics as a fertile discipline worthy of further pursuit. Review quote ‘Ethier and Simmons have crafted a masterful book This text should find wide application in providing sufficient background for a fundamental understanding of this important, emerging area.
The depth of coverage will serve well as a foundation for further investigation at the upper undergraduate or graduate level. Yet, little prior knowledge of biology is assumed. The topics covered include clinical specialties in which biomechanics has lent to the understanding and improvement of human health, including the cardiovascular, optometry, and musculoskeletal areas.
