Bio­me­cha­nics? No problem!

Is it per­mis­si­ble to pool the for­ces of all mus­cles effec­ting the exten­si­on of the back into one sin­gle mus­cle for­ce? Is it per­mis­si­ble to replace the mecha­ni­cal effect of pres­su­re dis­tri­bu­ti­on in the socket of a prost­he­sis by the effect of a sin­gle resul­tant for­ce? Can the inter­nal ener­gy pro­duc­tion of the body when wea­ring prost­he­tic devices be quantified?

Ans­wer to the­se and many other ques­ti­ons rela­ting to bio­me­cha­ni­cal aspects of ortho­pe­dic tech­no­lo­gy are pre­sen­ted in this prac­ti­cal collec­tion of exer­ci­ses. To refresh and broa­den your know­ledge, the pro­blems address mecha­ni­cal topics such as for­ce, power, pres­su­re, stress, moment, cen­ter of mass, velo­ci­ty and acce­le­ra­ti­on using examp­les from the field of ortho­pe­dic technology.

The mathe­ma­ti­cal back­round know­ledge requi­red is nomi­nal. All pro­blems are com­ple­men­ted by detail­ed inst­ruc­tions for sol­ving in order to faci­li­ta­te trai­ning while at the same time pro­vi­ding insight into the line of rea­so­ning of biomechanics.
