Below is a new Literature Update for keywords Biomech* or Locomot*
The delay in this update is due to my vacation and the vaguaries of
computer databases.
This update is very heavy in orthopedics as the data base I use caught up
with 4 or so recent issues of Spine.

I am considering not listing contents of Clinical Biomechanics, Gait &
Posture, and Bone because Elsevier provides free e-mail notification of
their table of contents. Their e-mail service is more timely than my data
base. J. Biomechanics table of contents is also available from there.

Though I never thought that I'd be promoting El$evier, here is the web site
where you can register to get table of contents updates.
