    DescriptionInstant Notes Sport and Exercise Biomechanics provides a comprehensive overview of the key concepts in exercise and sport biomechanics. The kinematics of motion are reviewed in detail, outlining the physics of motion. Mechanical characteristics of motion, the mechanisms of injury, and the analysis of the sport technique provides a source of valuable information.

    Author Information
    Paul Grimshaw, School of Health Sciences, University of South Australia Paul Grimshaw trained originally as a mechanical engineer with the Royal Ordnance before completing his degree (1984) and PhD in bioengineering (1989) from the University of Salford, UK. Throughout his 18 year career in academia he has lectured in the subject area of biomechanics at Brunel, Edinburgh and Exeter Universities in the UK. Currently he is working in the School of Health Sciences at the University of South Australia in Adelaide. His research interests centre on the topics of injury prevention and biomechanical measurement techniques in sport and exercise. To date he has been involved in the publication of over 60 refereed pieces of work in these areas. His current research interests include the mechanical properties of the anterior cruciate ligament and the 3 dimensional analysis of the walking gait of patients following hip replacement. In his teaching career he has acted as external examiner to several institutions and organisations and has taught biomechanics, anatomy and statistics to a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate students in the United Kingdom and Australia.
