Description

Comparative Kinesiology of the Human Body in Normal and Pathological Conditions covers the changes in musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiopulmonary systems, which when combined are the three pillars of human movement. It examines the causes, processes, consequences and contexts of physical activity from different perspectives and life stages, including early childhood and in the elderly. The book explains how purposeful movement of the human body is affected by pathological conditions related to any of these major systems. Coverage also includes external and internal factors that affect human growth patterns and development throughout the lifespan (embryo, child, adult and geriatrics).

It is the perfect reference for researchers of kinesiology and clinicians and students involved in rehabilitation practice.

Key Features

  • Includes in-depth coverage of the mechanical behavior of the embryo as one of the major determinants of human movement throughout the lifecycle
  • Provides a comparison of human movement between normal and pathological conditions
  • Systematically addresses each body region in functional and dysfunctional kinesiological terms

Readership

Researchers of kinesiology as well as clinicians and students involved in rehabilitation practice; this may include exercise physiologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, prosthetics and orthotics specialists, podiatric specialists, athletic trainers, and sports medicine physicians. Biomedical engineers who design equipment for transportation, rehabilitation clinics and aiding daily living activities
