ISBN13: 978-0803612433
ISBN10: 0803612435

Summary: Lynn Lippert adds a greater emphasis on clinical insights and functional connections to her easy-to-understand, well-organized 4th edition text. This accurate and thoughtfully updated edition is what should be at the heart of your clinical kinesiology course to help students analyze the mobility of specific joints in various activities of daily living. The first seven chapters describe the various body systems, terminology, and biomechanical principles that will be appl
ied in the individual joint chapters that follow.

Key Features
  • Greater clinical and functional "depth" added to the chapters. "Basic Biomechanics" includes more clinical and anatomical examples to better explain basic lever systems and inclined planes.
  • Expanded coverage and added illustrations in the "Gait" chapter includes lifespan gait patterns as well as descriptions of atypical gait
  • The various aspects of gait are described using both traditional terminology and the increasingly more common Rancho Los Amigos (RLA) terminology.
  • Revised layout allows for more figures and illustrations to appear as close as possible to the text that describes it
  • More chapter review questions added to include "points to remember," general anatomy and functional activity questions, and clinical exercises help students understand the human body from a clinical and functional perspective.
