Book Description

The aim of this book is to present the mechanical and electrical properties of human soft tissues and the mathematical models related to the evaluation of these properties in time, as well as their biomedical applications. The book also provides an overview of the bioelectric signals of soft tissues from various parts of the human body. This book presents the basic dielectric and viscoelastic characteristics of soft tissues, mathematical models for evaluation of such properties, an introduction to the measurement and characteristics of bioelectric signals and their relationship to the mechanical activity, electromyography and the correlation of electromyograms with the muscle activity in normal and certain clinical conditions. The authors also present a case study on the effect of lymphatic filariasis on the mechanical and electrical activity of the muscle. The book is intended for biomedical engineers, researchers, and medical scientists as well graduate and undergraduate students working on mechanical properties of soft tissues.
