About this Textbook

This is the first textbook to comprehensively cover the experimental methods used in biomechanics. Designed for graduate students and researchers studying human biomechanics at the whole-body level, the book introduces readers to the theory behind the primary data collection methods and primary methods of data processing and analysis used in biomechanics. Each individual chapter covers a different aspect of data collection or data processing, presenting an overview of the topic at hand and explaining the math required for understanding the topic. A series of appendices provide the specific math that is required for understanding the chapter contents. Each chapter leads readers through the techniques used for data collection and processing, providing sufficient theoretical background to understand both the how and why of these techniques. Chapters end with a set of review questions, and then a bibliography which is divided into three sections (cited references, specific references, and useful references).

  • Provides a comprehensive and in depth presentation on methods in whole-body human biomechanics;
  • First textbook to cover both collection and processing in a single volume;
  • Appendices provide the math needed for the main chapters. 

About the authors

John H. Challis received his B.Sc. (honors) and Ph.D. from Loughborough University in the UK. He then taught at the University of Birmingham. From there he moved to The Pennsylvania State University, where he is currently a Professor and Director of the Biomechanics Lab. Dr. Challis has served as the president of both the American Society of Biomechanics and the International Society of Biomechanics. He is an elected fellow of the National Academy of Kinesiology, the American Society of Biomechanics, and the International Society of Biomechanics. His research focus is musculoskeletal biomechanics with a view to developing improved measurement techniques, and understanding the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system.
