  • Employs a novel method of teaching focused on computer simulation modeling
  • Explains and demonstrates musculoskeletal problems through interactive simulation examples
  • Shows students how to use three different types of professional computer simulation software through resolved problems
  • Teaches multidisciplinary thinking
  • Incorporates extensive pedagogical features, including case studies, examples, and end-of-chapter problems


This full-color biomechanics textbook comprehensively covers biomechanics theory, while emphasizing and encouraging students’ creativity through interactive examples using professional computer simulation software. It provides novel problem-solving techniques based on learning experiments and interactive computer simulations with design feedback requirements. Drawing on the author’s more than 10 years of teaching experience and influenced by an original learning model, this book teaches multidisciplinary methods of resolving and approaching complex problems, supported by mathematical analysis about how design parameters are influenced by a user’s physical and strength capabilities.
