Here is this week's literature update for keywords BIOMECH* or LOCOMOT*.

Just a reminder that at my perogative, I don't list articles published in
J. Biomechanics, conference abstracts or articles in languages other than
English. No J. Biomech because I assume most everyone subscribes,
Elsevier will automatically send you the table of contents via e-mail if
you don't, and my database lags the publication substantially.
No conference abstracts because they are hard to find and English only
because I can't really tell what the article is about if the title is not
in English. Also, I limit to macroscopic biomechanics, though cell
biomechanics is a very hot area.
