The reader will find in this book a new approach to improving health. The author has called this approach "sanomechanics," combining the Latin sanus (healthy, sound) and mechanicus (science of the motion of bodies subjected to forces). The focus of sanomechanics is on exercising with an understanding of the biomechanical consequences of the actions. This understanding is based on the author's theory of the floating skeleton, which postulates a hydraulic connection of synovial joints. The theory explains the greater or lesser success of any exercise utilizing the ability of the human skeleton to absorb and transform forces and moments from the body segments and the environment. This ability vanishes with age and illnesses, and the deeper our understanding of the nature of skeletal functioning is, the better we shall be able to improve, protect, and prolong the skeleton's health.

Kritikerstimmen

From the reviews: "The author explains in detail his perception that there is a significant and meaningful connection between human health and skeletal functioning. ... The book should appeal largely to practitioners or readers who have an above average understanding of biomechanics. ... It is useful for readers who want to apply their understanding of biomechanics to their daily life. ... Overall, it is informative and allows readers to apply their knowledge of human motion to practical settings." (Erik H. VanIterson, Doody's Review Service, October, 2011)
