Occupational Biomechanics Don B. Special-purpose Biomechanical Models of Occupational Tasks.
Occupational Biomechanics, 4th Edition
I recommend this book to anyone, regardless of discipline, who is interested in understanding the many biomechanical factors which must be considered when trying to effectthe prevention and reduction of musculoskeletal injuries in the workplace. The 4 th edition has been entirely rewritten to provide a two column format that enhances the abilities of students to integrate the text Includes a number of new illustrations and concepts in biomechanics that are based on over 50 new references since the last edition was published.
Occupational Biomechanics as a Specialty.
