Product Description:

With Dynatomy, bring to life the wonders of human movement and applied anatomy for your students. The book is written for students of human performance who have completed an introductory human anatomy course and need a strong text in functional anatomy. The entertaining and easy-to-understand text considers fundamental movements—including posture, walking, running, jumping, throwing, kicking, and lifting—together with selected exercise and sport movements.

The emphasis of Dynatomyis on dynamic muscular motions rather than structural anatomy. Students benefit from a discussion of simple and complex human movements combined with an analysis of muscles in motion. The text also introduces the muscle control formula and explains how students can use it to identify the way in which muscles contract during various examples of human movement.

Part I presents an overview of the anatomical foundations of movement and the essential requirements for movement control. Part II examines dynamic movements and basic mechanics, muscular function, fundamental movements, and specialized movements.

The book is packed with features that will deepen students' appreciation of human movement:

-A wealth of unique illustrations and photos complement the text and improve understanding of difficult concepts.

-Chapter objectives, key terms, review questions, and summaries encourage students to interact with and remember the content.

-Movement analyses give students critical exposure to functional human movements.

Interactive Anatomy CD Included!
Completing the text is a new Primal Pictures CD-ROM titled Essentials of Interactive Functional Anatomy (IFA Essentials). This software will help students thoroughly review components of structural anatomy through the use of computer-graphic models of human anatomy derived from MRI scan data. Fully interactive 3-D animations show muscular and joint function.

IFA Essentialsfeatures a complete high-resolution 3-D model of the human musculature. The model can be rotated and allows for 11 layers of anatomy to be visually removed—from muscles down to bones. Specific muscles within the 3-D model can be highlighted, allowing users to view accompanying text about the selected muscle, such as name, primary action, agonists, antagonists, proximal and distal attachments, innervation, and blood supply. Text also accompanies specific ligaments within the model, providing information on function, injury mechanism, and pathology of injury.

The CD also includes 34 animations—each of which can be viewed from four different angles—showing clinical muscular function and providing students with a sense of the movement around joints. Four video clips of gross human motions demonstrate complete body movements, such as sit-ups and push-ups, coupled with live-action video clips showing the electrical stimuli of active muscles. To reinforce the content, IFA Essentials also offers an interactive quiz. Students can select the level of difficulty and number of quiz questions and then use a multiple-choice format to identify or locate various structures on the model.
