Book Description

This book provides an up-to-date review of research and scientific knowledge in the field of kinanthropometry. This subject area is defined as the relationship between human structure and function and is exemplified in studies of growth and development, ergonomics, nutrition, human performance and health, among other applications.

This edited collection includes the latest findings in kinanthropometric research and topics include body composition, athlete morphology and performance prediction, 3-dimensional analysis, body sizing, sexual dimorphism, virtual anthropometry, somatotype, bone density, body image and anthropometric pedagogy.

Kinanthropometry X offers essential reading for students, academics and researchers in exercise science, kinanthropometry, physical education and human sciences.

Biography

Professor Mike Marfell-Jones is based at the Universal College of Learning in Palmerston North, New Zealand. He is currently serving his second term as ISAK President. He has a long-standing record of research in kinanthropometry and body composition including on-going involvement in the long-running Brussels Cadaver Analysis Study, at Vrije Universiteit Brussel.  He was co-editor of Kinanthropometry VIII and senior editor of Kinanthropometry IX, both Routledge publications.

Associate-Professor Tim Olds is Director of the Centre for Applied Anthropometry at the University of South Australia. His previous anthropometric research has been in the evolution of sport morphology and changes in body composition in children. He is currently undertaking research using 3D whole-body scanning. Tim is co-editor of the textbook "Anthropometrica", a co-editor of Kinanthropometry IX and co-author of the "LifeSize" software.
