Abstract

In one succinct volume this book presents an overview of the analysis of human movement. The initial chapters present the key issues related to measuring human movement and relate these to the clinical environment. Important scientific and practical issues are discussed such as the accuracy, precision and calibration of measurement devices; the range of parameters available to describe functional movement and the nature and availability of clinical measurement tools. Subsequent chapters present authoritative reviews of different human functions from leading researchers in the field. These describe the current knowledge related to that function and the methods by which it can be evaluated. Finally the editors present a personal interpretation of the state of art in measuring functional human movement and indicate further avenues for exploration.
