Biomechanics Mechanical Properties of Living Tissues

Biomechanics Mechanical Properties of Living Tissues

Author: Y. C. Fung Format: Hardback Release Date: 18/06/1993

The objective of this book remains the same as that stated in the first edition: to present a comprehensive perspective of biomechanics from the stand point of bioengineering, physiology, and medical science, and to develop mechanics through a sequence of problems and examples. My three-volume set of Bio mechanics has been completed. They are entitled: Biomechanics: Mechanical Properties of Living Tissues; Biodynamics: Circulation; and Biomechanics: Motion, Flow, Stress, and Growth; and this is the first volume. The mechanics prerequisite for all three volumes remains at the level of my book A First Course in Continuum Mechanics (3rd edition, Prentice-Hall, Inc. , 1993). In the decade of the 1980s the field of Biomechanics expanded tremen dously. New advances have been made in all fronts. Those that affect the basic understanding of the mechanical properties of living tissues are described in detail in this revision. The references are brought up to date.

Nutrients as Ergogenic Aids for Sports and Exercise

Nutrients as Ergogenic Aids for Sports and Exercise

Author: Luke R. (Schiff Nutrition International, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA) Bucci Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/02/1993

Nutrients as Ergogenic Aids for Sports and Exercise discusses the growing body of information regarding the enhancement of human physical performance by dietary manipulations through ergogenesis. It balances the application of nutritional manipulations between overzealous promoters and recalcitrant cynics. By offering a thorough, comprehensive and up-to-date review of what is known about ergogenic effects of nutrients on humans, it bridges the gap between common usage and scientific knowledge. Nutrients as Ergogenic Aids for Sports and Exercise covers in detail many popular product ingredients not considered elsewhere. It illustrates areas awaiting future research, and offers suggestions for avoiding the pitfalls of performing ergogenesis research.

Author: Donald MacLaren Format: Hardback Release Date: 03/09/1992

The International Symposium on Biomechanics and Medicine in Swimming, held every four years under the aegis of the International Society of Biomechanics and the World Commission of Sports Biomechanics, provides a forum in which research related to swimming is reported and problems that confront swimming practitioners are debated. This volume contains the papers presented at the sixth symposium. The keynote addresses covered lactate metabolism, performance determining factors and the analysis of sprint swimming. The contributed papers range widely across sports science, coaching and training and sports medicine.

Experimentelle Untersuchungen Zur Biomechanik Des Kniebandapparats

Experimentelle Untersuchungen Zur Biomechanik Des Kniebandapparats

Author: Hartmuth Kiefer, Lutz Durselen, Lutz Claes, Lothar Kinzl Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 13/04/1992

Bandrekonstruktionen am Kniegelenk basieren auch heute noch auf empirisch gewonnenen klinischen Erkenntnissen. Erstmalig wird hier mit einer ausgefeilten experimentellen Untersuchungseinrichtung Grundlagenwissen zur Funktion des Kniebandapparats, zu seinen Verletzungen und seiner Wiederherstellung erarbeitet. Insbesondere wurde das Dehnungsverhalten der menschlichen Knieb{nder unter den verschiedensten simulierten Bedingungen ermittelt, unter {u~eren Stre~belastungen sowie unter dem Einflu~ der knie}bergreifenden Muskulatur. Au~erdem werden die Auswirkungen verschiedener Kreuzbandinsertionslokalisationen und Augmentationstechniken untersucht. Nach einer ]bersicht }ber die klnische Entwicklung der Bandchirurgie und der iomechanischen Grundlagen wird die experimentelle Methodik ausf}hrlich dargestellt. Die Ergebnisse sindklar gegliedert und ausschlie~lich graphisch dargestellt. Neue Ergebnisse lassen sich insbesondere aus der Muskelsimulationsuntersuchung gewinnen: Hier wird beispielsweise der antagonistische Einflu~ des M. quadriceps auf das vordere Kreuzband und die nur teilweise kompensatorische Wirkung der ischiokruralen Muskeln deutlich. Die gewonnenen Ergebnisse werden vergleichend mit der modernen Literatur umfassend diskutiert. Davon lassen sich wesentliche Schlu~folgerungen f}r die klinische Anwendung, d.h. dieBandersatztechnik undd die Nachbehandlung, ableiten. Kreuzband.

Kapsel-Band-Verletzungen des Kniegelenks

Kapsel-Band-Verletzungen des Kniegelenks

Author: Kuno Weise Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 08/11/1991

Dieser Band basiert auf Vortragen und Diskussionen der 3. Arbeitstagung der Chirurgischen Arbeitsgemeinschaft fur Sportverletzungen der Deutschen Gesellschaft fur Chirurgie in Tubingen am 26. Januar 1990. Thema dieser Tagung war die funktionelle Begleit- und Nachbehandlung nach operativ versorgten Kapsel-Band-Verletzungen des Kniegelenkes. Neben funktioneller Anatomie und Biomechanik werden die Ergebnisse tierexperimenteller Studien zum Einheilungsverhalten nach plastischem Kreuzbandersatz vorgestellt und Grundlagen der funktionellen Begleit- und Nachbehandlung demonstriert. Von besonderem Interesse sind in diesem Zusammenhang unterschiedliche Therapiekonzepte aus fuhrenden Zentren sowie Moglichkeiten flankierender Massnahmen, wie Isokinetik und Elektrostimulation. Schliesslich werden physiologische und praktische Erfahrungen aus der Sicht der Sportwissenschaft, des Physiotherapeuten und des Hochleistungssportlers dargestellt und durch die modernen Grundlagen orthopadietechnischer Versorgung erganzt.

Numerous provocative studies on the psychological effects of aerobic fitness training are available today, and more are appearing almost on a daily basis. This book reviews and evaluates the research, and it asks and attempts to answer significant background questions: What are the various motivating factors that have contributed to the emergence of the national fitness movement? What are the public health considerations con- cerning the relationship between physical fitness and coronary heart disease? What exactly do we mean by physical fitness, especially aerobic fitness? This book contains essential, in-depth data for everyone interested in the most solid and reliable information on the psychology of aerobic fitness.

Advances in Ergometry

Advances in Ergometry

Author: Norbert Bachl Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/04/1991

Exercise testing is widely used all over the world to assess functional capacity in athletes, healthy subjects and patients. According to recent surveys, the interest in ergometry is still growing in almost all fields of medicine, especially in private practice. Furthermore, there has been an exponential growth in the number of publications on exercise testing in the last years. Several consensus and task force conferences have dealt with exercise testing and published recommendations on standardization and guidelines in ergometry. These factors have, in combination, initiated an upsurge in research and clinical use of exercise testing. At the 6th International Seminar on Ergometry the latest findings and advances in ergometry were discussed. Reviews and results of the congress covering a wide range of features in exercise testing are presented in this book. The editors hope that this book will make a substantial contribution to our knowledge regarding exercise testing and will help physicians to appropriately evaluate exercise testing in healthy and diseased subjects. The editors are indepted to Miss I. Baumgartner and Mr. W. Reith for their effort in typing and preparing the manuscripts. The editors are greatful to Springer-Verlag for the close cooperation and for their expertise in publishing the present volume. N. Bachl T. Graham H. Lallgen Contents W.
