An engaging introduction to human and animal movement seen through the lens of mechanics.

How  do Olympic sprinters run so fast? Why do astronauts adopt a bounding  gait on the moon? How do running shoes improve performance while  preventing injuries? This engaging and generously illustrated book  answers these questions by examining human and animal movement through  the lens of mechanics. The authors present simple conceptual models to  study walking and running and apply mechanical principles to a range of  interesting examples. They explore the biology of how movement is  produced, examining the structure of a muscle down to its microscopic  force-generating motors. Drawing on their deep expertise, the authors  describe how to create simulations that provide insight into muscle  coordination during walking and running, suggest treatments to improve  function following injury, and help design devices that enhance human  performance.

Throughout, the book emphasizes established  principles that provide a foundation for understanding movement. It also  describes innovations in computer simulation, mobile motion monitoring,  wearable robotics, and other technologies that build on these  fundamentals. The book is suitable for use as a textbook by students and  researchers studying human and animal movement. It is equally valuable  for clinicians, roboticists, engineers, sports scientists, designers,  computer scientists, and others who want to understand the biomechanics  of movement.
