  • Resource books for an instrumentation class

    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.

    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.
