He had a great understanding of science and mechanics and studied anatomy in a mechanics context.
This line of gravity is important to understand and visualise when determining a person's ability to successfully maintain balance. There are also sections and examples which describe experiment, test and device design techniques linked to the pertinent theories. On his deathbed, he published his work, On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres.
The book contains many figures, diagrams and tables with accompanying formulations, their explanations and examples. You need to have a good understanding of both static and dynamic balance: Static Balance The ability to control the body while the body is stationary.
Overall, however, I am quite satisfied with the ingredients of the book, and I feel inclined to recommend this book to lecturers of undergraduate level biomechanics courses in diverse engineering disciplines. O'Rourke, covers the fundamentals of biomechanics. Over his years of science, Galileo made a lot of biomechanical aspects known.
In biomechanics the different planes of motion and axes are often referred to. In addition, there are paragraphs on modern imaging technologies such as CAT Computerized Axial TomographyMRI Magnetic Resonance Imaging and so forth; however, these could have been combined with their place in geometry construction and numerical modelling in a chapter.
