Occupational Biomechanics, 4th Edition

An Example of a Predetermined Motion? 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.

ChaffinGunnar B.

I recommend this book to anyone, regardless of discipline, who is interested in understanding the many biomechanical factors which must be considered when trying to effectthe prevention and reduction of musculoskeletal injuries in the workplace. As such it explores the biomechanical principles both in the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders in industry and working conditions and worker performance in general.

The 4 th edition has been entirely rewritten to provide a two column format that enhances the abilities of students to integrate the text Includes a number of new illustrations and concepts in biomechanics that are based on over 50 new references since the last edition was published.

Occupational Biomechanics Don B. Anderson Snippet view – This latest edition of the popular and widely adopted Occupational Biomechanics provides the foundations and tools to assemble and evaluate biomechanical processes as they apply to today’s changing industries, with emphasis on improving overall work efficiency and preventing work-related injuries.
