The study of the function, structure and motion of the mechanical aspects of biological systems by using the methods of mechanics is known as biomechanics. It is a broad field which can be divided into various sub-fields such as biofluid mechanics, biotribology, comparative biomechanics, computational biomechanics, continuum biomechanics, plant biomechanics and sports biomechanics. It ranges from the study of the inner working of a cell to the movement and development of limbs. Biomechanics also studies the mechanical properties of soft tissues, and bones. It is used in various other areas including orthopedic industry, as well as in the study of human musculoskeletal system. This book aims to shed light on some of the unexplored aspects of biomechanics. Also included herein is a detailed explanation of the various concepts and applications of biomechanics. The book is appropriate for those seeking detailed information in this area.
