Example text

Here are the axes of the body (shown in Figure 3-1): ✓ Vertical axis: A vertical axis is aligned from the top to the bottom of the body. When a body rotates around a vertical axis, the movement of the body is through the transverse plane. When you look at someone 41 42 Part I: Getting Started with Biomechanics from above, your eye is looking along a vertical axis. When a vertical axis is applied to an individual segment, it’s set to run the length of the Â�segment and is called a longitudinal axis.

Quantitative analysis: This type of analysis measures kinematic and kinetic parameters of performance, usually using sophisticated laboratory equipment. It provides a more detailed description of a performance and is most typically used in a research study (or often in a laboratory experience in a biomechanics class). ✓ Forensic analysis: Biomechanics is one of the tools used to resolve criminal and civil legal questions. ” Chapter 2 Reviewing the Math You Need for Biomechanics In This Chapter ▶ Setting a coordinate system ▶ Operating with algebra ▶ Dealing with the right triangle ▶ Working with vectors M athematics plays a big part in biomechanics.

The equation now looks like this: x = 20 + 12 ÷ 2 + 28 + 42 7 4. Solve all division. Moving from left to right, the first division you have is 12 ÷ 2, which is 6. And the next division you see is 28 , which is 4. 7 The equation now looks like this: x = 20 + 6 + 4 + 42 5. Solve all addition. You’re in the home stretch now. Add up the numbers, and you get x = 72. ) Defining some math operations When you’re working on math problems in biomechanics, you’ll encounter words like sum, difference, product, and quotient, and you need to know what those words mean in order to do the math correctly.
