  • A new book

    Dear Biomch-L subscribers,

    Announcements of new books are always
    welcome, but these should be written as a press
    release rather than an advertisement. The Biomch-L
    moderators will usually edit such contributions prior
    to distribution.

    Title : Analytical Biomechanics - Modeling and Optimal Controller Designs
    Author : Asif Mahmood Mughal, PhD
    Publisher : VDM Verlag
    ISBN :9783639159219

    This book provides new analytical modeling schemes to biomechanical
    movements, physiological motor control and combined
    musculoskeletal models with neurophysiologic
    controller to emulate muscle commands and joint
    torques. This book discusses the details of optimal
    controls with physiological cost functions to analyze
    the human sit-to-stand task for healthy and stroke
    patients. The biomechanical framework uses Maple and
    Matlab environments for modeling, control and
    simulation purposes. Major part of this work is
    peer-reviewed, and holds great potential to study
    task specific applications in kinesiology,
    ergonomics, and rehabilitation robotics, biomedical
    engineering and experimental validation of human
    voluntary movements.
