The human gait by Wilhelm Braune( Book )

9 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The different chapters of the present book were published separately each as a complete entity in the Proceedings of the Royal Saxon Society for Sciences. Chapter 1 appeared in 1895 under the names of Wilhelm Braune and Otto Fischer although Braune died immediately after the initial experiments, before the recordings had been interpreted. Chapters 2-6 were signed by Fischer only and appeared in 1899, 1900, 1901, 1903 and 1904. Basic data needed for this investigation of the human gait had been provided previously. A research on the centre of gravity ofthe human body and its different segments by both authors was published in 1889, determination of the moments of inertia of the human body and its segments in 1892. So far only the fIrst of these two works has been published in English. The other has been translated and awaits publication. Springer-Verlag must be congratulated for the quality of this edition and for the care they took in reproducing the original fIgures. This was certainly no easy task. We thank them for the patience they displayed towards the translators. Publication of the present book was made possible fInancially by Prof. M. Muller, Bern. We are grateful to him for his generosity and so will be the scientifIc community
Determination of the moments of inertia of the human body and its limbs by Wilhelm Braune( Book )

15 editions published between 1892 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is another classic contribution by Braune and Fischer to the field of biomechanics, translated here for the first time from the original German edition of 1892. The pendulum method was employed to ascertain accurately the moments and radii of inertia of the human body and its different parts about all axes - transverse, oblique or longitudinal. This elegant method is described in detail, together with the results. Relations were found between the centres of inertia on the one hand, and the lengths and diameters of the body segments on the other. These data were originally prepared for the authors' later work, The Human Gait, to determine the forces exerted on and by the parts of the body during walking. Such work is the basis for solving the mechanical problems related to any movement of the human body: thus, the original results presented here continue to be of immense value to current research and practice
