Biomechanics of Competitive Diving, A U.S. Diving Reference Manual by author
Doris I. Miller, Ph.D. with contributions by Maurice R. Yeadon, Ph.D. and Gerald
S. George, Ph.D. and video illustrations by Aleksandra Zecevic is published by
(C) United States Diving, 2000.

The manual is a research based text written for U.S. Diving's Coach Development
Program and undergraduate and graduate sport biomechanics courses. It can also
serve as a reference manual for physical education teachers, aquatics
specialists, athletic trainers, sports physical therapists and other sports
medicine practitioners.

Throughout, the text demonstrates biomechanical principles and applications
using examples specific to the sport of competitive diving. The text presents
the coach with a guided tour of the biomechanical considerations involved in
making informed coaching decisions. This is accomplished through the
presentation of key biomechanical concepts that coaches should know, building
blocks to help coaches understand the physical principles and practical
applications to enable coaches to apply knowledge of biomechanics as it relates
to the sport of competitive diving. The text is replete with video images of
exemplary dives performed in national and international competitions.

An overview of functional anatomy is tailored specifically for competitive
diving movements. Ten focus topics integral to the coaching of competitive
diving are included in the manual: forces acting on the diver, muscle force and
functional anatomy, hand balance, flight-linear motion, flight-angular motion,
platform takeoffs, springboard response, springboard takeoffs, entries, and
twisting

The BYP lists companies that offer biomechanics-related products and services.
As you know, these companies may not post commercial announcements directly to
Biomch-L. However, new BYP listings and updates (no more than once per year)
are posted to Biomch-L by the maintainer of the BYP or the Biomch-L moderator.
