About the Book

This edited collection of papers presented at the 18th International Symposium of Biomechanics in Sport, highlights cutting-edge research material on sports biomechanics from many of the leading international academics in the field.

The thirty-seven chapters presented are divided into nine sections:

* biomechanics of fundamental human movement

* modelling, simulation and optimisation

* biomechanics of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system

* sports injuries, orthopaedics and rehabilitation

* the application of electromyography in movement studies

* biomechanical analysis of the internal load

* methods and instrumentation

* training

* paediatric and geriatric exercise.
