Human Orthopaedic Biomechanics,
Edition 1 Fundamentals, Devices and Applications
Edited by Bernardo Innocenti and Fabio Galbusera

Publication Date: 24 Feb 2022

Human Orthopaedic Biomechanics: Fundamentals, Devices and Applications covers a wide range of biomechanical topics and fields, ranging from theoretical issues, mechanobiology, design of implants, joint biomechanics, regulatory issues and practical applications. The book teaches the fundamentals of physiological loading and constraint conditions at various parts of the musculoskeletal system. It is an ideal resource for teaching and education in courses on orthopedic biomechanics, and for engineering students engaged in these courses. In addition, all bioengineers who have an interest in orthopedic biomechanics will find this title useful as a reference, particularly early career researchers and industry professionals.

Finally, any orthopedic surgeons looking to deepen their knowledge of biomechanical aspects will benefit from the accessible writing style in this title.

Key Features

  • Covers theoretical aspects (mechanics, stress analysis, constitutive laws for the various musculoskeletal tissues and mechanobiology)
  • Presents components of different regulatory aspects, failure analysis, post-marketing and clinical trials
  • Includes state-of-the-art methods used in orthopedic biomechanics and in designing orthopedic implants (experimental methods, finite element and rigid-body models, gait and fluoroscopic analysis, radiological measurements)
