Biomechanics and Exercise Physiology is intended for the bioengineer who must learn about exercise responses, and use that information to understand or design life support systems, devices to assist with work performance, or equipment to protect active people.
This book presents exercise bioenergetics, biomechanics, cardiovascular responses, respiratory responses, and thermoregulatory responses. Covered are response mechanics, control, and mathematical models. Tables of values complement the quantitative treatment of the subject. A thorough index eases finding of material in the book.
