Biomechanics is the application of mechanical principles (statics, strength of materials and stress analysis to the solution of biological problems of living organisms. This includes bioengineering, the research and analysis of the mechanics of living organisms and the application of engineering principles to and from biological systems. This research and analysis can be carried forth on multiple levels, from the molecular, wherein biomaterials such as collagen and elastin are considered, all the way up to the tissue and organ level. This new and important book gathers the latest research from around the globe in the study of this dynamic field with a focus on issues such as; art biomechanics, understanding corneal biomechanics, biomechanical remodelling of the diabetic gastrointestinal tract, biomechanics in children with cerebral palsy, cell biomechanics for orthopaedic implants, and others.

Preface; Arts Biomechanics -- An Infant Science: Its Challenges & Future; Understanding Corneal Biomechanics through Experimental Assessment & Numerical Simulation; Biomechanics Concepts of Bone-Oral Implant Interface; Biomechanical Remodeling of the Diabetic Gastrointestinal Tract; Electromyography in the 21st Century: From Voluntary Signals to Motor Evoked Potentials; Biomechanics in Children with Cerebral Palsy; Biomechanical Properties of Cornea; Some Aspects of the Biomechanics of Skilled Musical Performance; Contact Hip Stress Measurements in Orthopaedic Clinical Practice; External Pelvic Fixation during Lumbar Muscle Resistance Exercise; Bone Cell Adhesion: An Important Aspect of Cell Biomechanics in the Development of Surface Modifications for Orthopaedic Implants; The Differences in Biomechanical Patterns of Fast Motor Learning of Children & Adults; Improvement of the Input Data in Biomechanics: Kinematic & Body Segment Inertial Parameters; Index
