Kinetic Anatomy provides both students and professionals with a firm concept of musculoskeletal anatomy by systematically assembling each component of the human body: bones, ligaments, joints, and muscles on the bones, as well as the nerves and blood vessels that supply these muscles. The text also examines the brain, heart, and lungs, and how those structures of the nervous, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems contribute to human movement. Readers will also benefit from practical exercises, quizzes, online terminology flashcards and online anatomy labelling and colouring exercises to aid their learning from the text.
