This title deals with the wonders of human movement and applied anatomy. "Dynatomy: Dynamic Human Anatomy with DVD" is intended for students of human performance who have an understanding of human anatomy and need a strong text in functional anatomy.
This entertaining and easy-to-understand book considers fundamental movements such as posture, walking, running, jumping, throwing, kicking and lifting, together with selected exercise and sport movements. The emphasis of Dynatomy is on dynamic muscular motions rather than structural anatomy.
Students benefit from a discussion of simple and complex human movements combined with an analysis of the muscles in motion. The text also introduces the muscle control formula and explains how to identify the ways in which muscles contract during movement. Completing the text is the "Primal Pictures DVD-ROM Essentials of Interactive Functional Anatomy". This software will help students thoroughly review components of structural anatomy through the use of 3-D interactive computer-graphic models of human anatomy derived from MRI scan data.
