Description
Written by occupational therapists, KINESIOLOGY: Movement in the Context of Activity is the first comprehensive kinesiology textbook written specifically for occupational therapy (OT) students. It's also the only kinesiology text that presents solutions to biomechanical problems with a shift in emphasis away from mathematics and trigonometry and toward sound logic based on kinesiologic and biomechanical principles. Additionally, it's the only text to offer in-depth coverage of wrist and hand pathokinesiology as well as normal kinesiologic function of the wrist and fingers. Students will rely on this text during their first year coursework and beyond. * Because it's the only kinesiology/biomechanics text written by occupational therapists for occupational therapy students, examples, case studies and applications throughout the text apply specifically to clinical practice in OT, not other disciplines. * Helps students link kinesiology to real human experience through clinical vignettes, which feature clients/patients in day-to-day OT practice. * Includes an introductory chapter that emphasizes the importance of kinesiology/biomechanics to the practice of occupational therapy. * Covers both the upper and lower extremity. * Includes "A Closer Look" boxes which set key topics or complicated information apart and provide detailed explanations for better understanding of material. * Contains a thorough explanation of biomechanical analysis in Chapter 9. * Includes in-depth coverage of wrist and hand pathokinesiology as well as normal kinesiologic function of the wrist and fingers. * Features clearly written and easy-to-follow style. * Contains more than 200 illustrations and photos to facilitate understanding. * Includes problem-solving application questions at the end of each chapter to challenge the reader to answer questions based on the material learned. * Chapters contain key terms and outlines of chapter content. * Includes numerous helpful appendices that provide users with essential information.
