    schema:description "The study of biomechanics and movements organization has become progressively more complex since the development of advanced computers and improved measurement techniques. In Multiple Muscle Systems - Biomechanics and Movements Organization, Jack M. Winters and Savio L-Y. Woo present a critical and exhaustive assessment of the relationships between muscle properties, musculoskeletal dynamics, and neuromotor organizational strategies. Respected leaders in this growing interdisciplinary field have contributed both theoretical and applied material to this volume. The book begins with a definitive treatment of muscle mechanics and modelling approaches for musculoskeletal movements systems, and continues with the principles underlying movements organization. It synthesizes existing information into a novel and cohesive characterization of biomechanics and movements organization, and offers many fresh perspectives of this rapidly expanding discipline. With its timely, up-to-date nature, it will appeal to professionals and re- searchers in the fields of biomechanics, biomedical engineering, physical education, and medicine, and to graduate students with an interest in bioengineering, physiology, and neuroscience."@en ;
