About the book

Our objective is to summarize the most important biomechanical parameters influencing human performance related to the health sciences for all age groups, throughout their lives. This book project aims to promote the latest researches in the field of biomechanics and to summarize better recommendations. The purpose is to specify the principles of mathematics, functional anatomy and mechanics to explore and understand biological problems. Help to prevent functional decline and frailty following a Life Course Perspective Approach through the utilization of the latest research in biomechanics and their applications targeted to all stages of life aimed at the prevention, improve performance and management of diseases. Modeling, simulation, Artificial Intelligence and Computing of the musculoskeletal system permit to quantify and improve the discriminate parameters characterizing the movement in different cases such as sport level, work, and patients daily lives. The aim is to effectively combine and coordinate biomechanical research and results in order to understand and improve human mechanics in medicine, sport and at work.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sandra Maljavac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
