View Full Version : Resource books for an instrumentation class

12-07-2000, 08:16 AM
I am going to teach a course: "instrumentation and measurements in
biomechanics and motor control". The course is designed to familiarize
upper level undergraduate and graduate students with the use of a variety
of instruments for measurements of kinematic, kinetic and EMG data. The
students will get hands-on experience through a weekly lab. I am looking
for a book to accompany this course. The ideal book will have the
theoretical background as well as examples and suggestions for lab
activities. Alternatively, I will create a course pack using a variety of
sources. So far I have looked at the following sources for such a course

Webster, J.G. (1992) Medical instrumentation, application and design.

Rubin S.A. (1987) The principles of biomedical instrumentation. A
beginner's guide.

Winter, D.A. (1990) Biomechanics and motor control of human movement.

Miller, D.I. and Nelson, R.C. (1973) Biomechanics of sport.

Jeffrey, R.C., Kasman, G.S. and Holtz, J. (1998) Introduction to surface

Tutorials on the use of surface electromyography. http://www.delsys.com.

International Society of Electromyographical Kinesiology (ISEK) EMG
standards. Appendix C. Units, Terms and Standards in the reporting of EMG

I would appreciate any suggestions/recommendations for either a book for
the course, or any other good resources for either the course pack or
ideas for the labs.
