Now in its seventh edition, this reputable textbook is an ideal introduction to the study of human

movement and an excellent reference encouraging and directing further study.

For the first time there is a chapter dedicated to measuring and understanding physical activity,

recognising the importance of this area to many health and sports professionals. More time is spent

explaining the basic principles of biomechanics and the way they can be used to improve practice,

including tissue mechanics and movement analysis techniques.

An Introduction to Human Movement and Biomechanics is the perfect guide for students and

professionals all around the world to consolidate learning and apply to real clinical/sports situation.

Information is given in a clear and accessible way, with case studies, illustrations, textboxes

and practical examples.

  • • A chapter on physical (in)activity.

    • More chapters explaining basic biomechanics and its application to understanding

    human movement.

    • A new section dedicated to measuring human movement including movement

    analysis techniques.

    • A whole chapter of case studies with real patient and athlete data

    • Scientific theory related to re-learning movement and movement control.

    • Problems posed to help students work through the theory and apply it to

    clinical scenarios

    • Written by well-known and multi-disciplinary researchers with extensive

    experience in the field

    It includes access to the Evolve online resources:

    • Log on to and test out your learning

    • Case studies, including videoclips and animations

    • Hundreds of self-assessment questions
