Biomechanics and Motor Control of Human Movement
Considered one of the founding fathers of biomechanics as we know it today, DAVID A. WINTER, PHD, is Distinguished Professor Emeritus in Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo. His many distinctions include Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the Canadian Society for Biomechanics. He was the first recipient of the Career Investigators Award by the Canadian Society of Biomechanics, the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society, and the Muybridge Medal by the International Society of Biomechanics. In addition to this text, he is author of three other texts on the biomechanics and electromyography of normal and pathological gait, balance during standing and walking, and signal processing in the movement sciences.
