Kinetic Anatomy 4th Edition With HKPropel Access

Kinetic Anatomy 4th Edition With HKPropel Access

$162.95 CAD


Product Format
    Kinetic Anatomy, Fourth Edition With HKPropel Access, gives students a firm concept of musculoskeletal anatomy by systematically assembling each component of the human body. Layer by layer, readers will study bones, ligaments, joints, and muscles as well as the nerves and blood vessels that supply these muscles that are essential for movement.With full-color visual aids and activities that invite readers to apply their understanding of structural anatomy to their own lives, the fourth edition is ideally suited for students studying physical activity because it explores how the structural anatomy of the human body facilitates movement.

    Part I of the text introduces the basics of structural anatomy. It describes how bones, joints, muscles, nerves, and other essential anatomy work together to allow for fundamental movement. Part II details the anatomy of the upper extremity region, including the shoulder, elbow, forearm, wrist, and hand. Part III of the text explores the anatomy of the head, spinal column, thorax, and pelvis. These chapters include unique coverage not found in other anatomy texts, explaining how the brain, heart, and lungs—as the power centers of the nervous, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems—affect movement. Part IV discusses the anatomy of the lower extremity region: the hip, thigh, knee, lower leg, ankle, and foot. Parts II, III, and IV each end with a summary table that offers a quick reference for the components of the body region featured in that part.

    Kinetic Anatomy, Fourth Edition, contains nearly 400 photos, illustrations, and infographics to help readers visualize structural anatomy and engage with their coursework. Throughout the book, Hands On exercises instruct readers to physically identify anatomical structures on themselves or on a partner, and Focus On sidebars illustrate circumstances in everyday activity that relate to the specific anatomical structures in the text. Pop quizzes provide readers an opportunity to strengthen their clinical reasoning skills by asking them to identify the muscles shown in the accompanying photo. The fourth edition is further enhanced with the addition of new online learning tools —all of which can be assigned, and progress tracked, by instructors directly through HKPropel:
    • Anatomy labeling and coloring sheets offer students nearly 100 interactive activities that test their knowledge of anatomical structures and function.
    • Learning activities; true-false, multiple-choice, and fill-in-the-blank questions; and functional movement exercises ensure students have a firm grasp of key points from each chapter.
    • Chapter quizzes (assessments) may also be assigned; these are automatically graded to test comprehension of critical concepts.
    Readers of Kinetic Anatomy, Fourth Edition, will learn what structures are involved in movement and how those structures should function, allowing them to identify problems and correct them to enhance physical activity. Anyone interested in just how their body functions during physical activity and how certain overuse or misuse can affect certain anatomical structures will benefit from this book.

    Earn continuing education credits/units! A continuing education course and exam that uses this book is also available. It may be purchased separately or as part of a package that includes all the course materials and exam.

    Note: A code for accessing HKPropel is included with all new print books.

    Robert S. Behnke, HSD, is retired after 39 years of teaching anatomy, kinesiology, physical education, and athletic training courses at the high school and university levels. Behnke has been honored on several occasions for excellence in teaching—including receiving the Caleb Mills Outstanding Teaching Award at Indiana State University and the Educator of the Year Award from the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA). He served 11 years as chair of the NATA Professional Education Committee. In 1990, Behnke was inducted into the NATA Hall of Fame. He is also in the Indiana State University Athletic Hall of Fame, the Illinois Athletic Trainer Hall of Fame, and the Indiana Athletic Trainer Hall of Fame.

    Behnke spent most of his career at Indiana State University (1975-1998), where he was a full professor of physical education and athletic training and director of undergraduate and graduate athletic training programs; in retirement, he holds the rank of professor emeritus. He served as head athletic trainer and an instructor at Illinois State University from 1966 to 1969. He was head athletic trainer and an assistant professor at the University of Illinois from 1969 to 1975. He was an athletic trainer for boxing, men's field hockey, team handball, ice skating, roller hockey, gymnastics, judo, and cycling at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs in 1984 and 1991.

    This broad range of experiences enabled Behnke to understand the needs of undergraduate students—and to develop an unparalleled grasp of which pedagogical approaches work and which do not.

    Jennifer Plant, EdD, is the clinical education coordinator and an instructor for the athletic training program at the University of Central Florida. Previously, Plant served as an instructor and clinical education coordinator for the athletic training education program at Charleston Southern University. During her employment, she also provided athletic training services for the women’s volleyball team, men’s and women’s cross country teams, and indoor and outdoor track and field teams. She also served as a liaison between the university’s athletic department and athletic training program.

    Plant also has experience working as an industrial athletic trainer, overseeing the medical care of distribution center employees, and has experience providing athletic training services for clinic and high school settings. Plant holds the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) designation from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
