Contents Definitions and history of Biomechanics and Robotics; science and technology of actuation, sensing, control, integral architecture of both living and "artificial" organisms; product development, industrial robotics; general science and technology of locomotion and manipulation; biologically inspired robotics; robotic prosthetics, orthotics, assistive and augmentative devices; medical robotics, etc;
Summary Annotation The science and technology of biomechanics and robotics promise to be some of the most influential research directions of the twenty-first century. Biomechanics and Robotics goes beyond the individual areas of biomechanics, robotics, biomedical engineering, biomechatronics, and biologically inspired robotics to provide the first unified textbook on the subject. It offers a "big picture" look at the state-of-the-art science and technology. With numerous figures, references, and exercises, the book presents a pedagogical introduction to a variety of topics, reviews historical developments, and gives up-to-date insights on modern-day biomechanics and robotics
