Couverture de l’ouvrage Dynamic modeling of musculoskeletal motion
Dynamic Modeling of Musculoskeletal Motion introduces biomechanists at all levels of expertise to modern methods of modeling and analyzing dynamic biomechanical systems in three dimensions. Using vector kinematics, the reader is taught a systematic method which significantly reduces the complexity of working with multiple, moving limb segments in three dimensions. Operations which usually require the application of different calculus are replaced by simple algebraic formula. To derive dynamical equations of motion, a practical introduction to Kane's Method is given. Kane's Method builds upon the foundation of vector kinematics and represents one of the most exciting theoretical developments of the modern era. Together, these techniques enable biomechanists to decipher and model living systems with great realism, efficiency and accuracy. Using these methods, much more time can be spent on biomechanical issues, and much less time must be expended tediously deriving equations of motion. Interwoven with the theoretical presentation are chapters and examples which highlight the subtle differences between inanimate linkages and the biomechanical systems we seek to understand.

'In conclusion, Dynamic modeling of "musculoskeletal modeling" by Gray Yamaguchi is an excellent book for those of us who want to take up (or teach) 3-D musculoskeletal modeling. The book is especially suited as reference, for obtaining comprehensive overview, or as material for graduate courses in the are of 3-D modeling. It is well worth having.'Journal of Biomechanics 35:871-872 (2002)
