  • Hand Biomech texts summary

    Dear Biomechanists,

    Last week I requested information from you hand biomechanists on a good
    text to use for a new PhD level Occupational Biomechanics of the upper
    extremity course to be taught in an IE/Ergonomics curriculum. Thank you
    all for replying. Below is a summary of the texts that were
    recommended, the second one having been metioned by almost everyone who
    replied (I have included all of the relevant info I could get necessary
    for getting these texts from the publisher or library):
