Biomedical Engineering Principles in Sports contains in-depth discussions on the fundamental biomechanical and physiological principles underlying the acts of throwing, shooting, hitting, kicking, and tackling in sports, as well as vision training, sports injury, and rehabilitation. The topics include:

-Golf ball aerodynamics and golf club design,

-Golf swing and putting biomechanics,

-Tennis ball aerodynamics and ball- and shoe-surface interactions,

-Tennis stroke mechanics and optimizing ball-racket interactions,

-Baseball pitching biomechanics and perceptual illusions of batters,

-Football forward pass aerodynamics and tackling biomechanics,

-Soccer biomechanics,

-Basketball aerodynamics and biomechanics,

-Vision training in sports,

-Children maturation and performance,

-Rehabilitation and medical advances in treatment of sports injuries.

This book is essential reading for biomedical engineers, physicists, sport scientists, and physiologists who wish to update their knowledge of biomechanical and biomedical principles and their applications to sports. The book can be used in a one-semester Senior or Graduate-level course in Biomechanics, Biomedical Engineering, Sports Technology, Sports Medicine, or Exercise Physiology. In addition, it will be of value to interested athletic laypersons who enjoy watching or participating in sports such as golf, tennis, softball, football, soccer, and basketball.

Par autoru (2004)

George Hung, PhD, is a leading figure in the field of vision research, particularly in the areas of oculomotor control of accommodation, and vergence and saccadic eye movements. He is internationally-recognized for his Incremental Retinal-Defocus Theory of Myopia Development. Dr. Hung is currently Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Rutgers University. He is also an avid golfer and ballroom-dancing enthusiast. Jani Macari Pallis, Ph.D. is the founder and CEO of Cislunar Aerospace, Inc., an engineering and research firm located in San Francisco, California. A mechanical and aeronautical engineer, she specializes in fluid dynamics, with an emphasis on air and marine vehicles and sports equipment.
Dr. Pallis passionately uses sports and aviation to teach engineering and science to students of all ages.
