Biomechanics as a systematic task isn't new. Already concerned (or so it really is stated) in its perform have been Aristotle (384-327 BC) and Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). lately, despite the fact that, it has develop into trendy as a separate box, as witnessed through the lifestyles of a magazine of Biomechanics (1968), an Interna­ tional (1973), a eu (1976) and an American (1977) Society of Biomechanics, and an quantity of (usually lately erected) Biomechanics Laboratories at Uni­ versities or different associations in the course of the international. If one or~anises a Con­ ference on Biomechanics, a comparatively huge variety of scientists go away their booths or workshops to go to where of worship. It turns into fast glaring, besides the fact that, that this kind of discussion board for medical verbal exchange is way from being homo­ geneous. All usually are not of a similar think, and the range in expert inte­ rests virtually parallels the variety of attendants. "Biomechanics, the technological know-how of using tools and ideas of Mechanics to organic tissues and scientific difficulties" is a definition which, in a single shape or one other, has came across broad popularity between biomecanicians. however, Bio­ mechanics is interwoven and therefore usually stressed with different clinical endeavors. it's coloured in a different way by way of its many fields of software (e. g. Orthopaedic and Cardio-Vascular surgical procedure, Dentistry, Rehabilitation, actual drugs, damage Prevention, activities and others), and the backgrounds of its disciplina­ ries. It partially overlaps sciences as Biomaterials, scientific Physics and Biophy­ sics, body structure, and practical Anatomy.

Hay) could be the following: The ultimate objective of research in biomechanics of sport is to increase the understanding of human movement. This is usually, if not always, concerned with the attempt to optimize or max imi ze human movement in order to achi eve the "best resul t" • Best resul t can mean a worl d record in runni ng, a controll ed movement of a chil d learni ng a specific motor pattern or a movement technique skeletal system against over-loading. ): Biomechanics: Principles and Applications.

It seems that general considerations on biomechanics of human movement (13) are more relevant for this group. Studies in the field of sport of disabled or retarded people is becoming more frequent. This development is parallel to the developing significance of disabled sport. Comparing the amount of studies in these three fields with the number of people participating in these groups one real izes that for the two smaller side groups (high performance and disabled) much more research has been carri ed out than for the 1arge group of every day sportsmen and school sport.
