The first edition of Equine Locomotion has established itself as the book in the equine literature that discusses all aspects of equine locomotion and gait analysis, written by an international team of editors and contributors. The new edition continues this trend and gives the reader a complete picture of the horse in motion, at the same time including many recent findings in this area. The book begins with a history of man’s association with the horse and then continues to discuss with comprehensive descriptions of the present state of knowledge beginning with the initiation of gait and ending with the more scientific area of computer modeling. In the new edition, the list of contributors continues to comprise of authors who are acknowledged experts in their subject areas and includes many new illustrations. • international team of editors and contributors, with leading experts from the USA, the Netherlands, Sweden and France (all centres of excellence for the study of equine locomotion) • editors are from two of the worlds leading locomotion centres – Utrecht and Michigan • highly illustrated with nearly 500 detailed line drawings and illustrations • covers all you will ever need to know about equine locomotion, gait analysis and much more • international team of editors and contributors, with leading experts from the USA, the Netherlands, Sweden and France (all centres of excellence for the study of equine locomotion) • editors are from two of the worlds leading locomotion centres – Utrecht and Michigan • highly illustrated with nearly 500 detailed line drawings and illustrations • covers all you will ever need to know about equine locomotion, gait analysis and much more

Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography

The Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography is the first comprehensive encyclopedia of world photography up to the beginning of the twentieth century. It sets out to be the standard, definitive reference work on the subject for years to come. Its coverage is global – an important ‘first’ in that authorities from all over the world have contributed their expertise and scholarship towards making this a truly comprehensive publication. The Encyclopedia presents new and ground-breaking research alongside accounts of the major established figures in the nineteenth century arena. Coverage includes all the key people, processes, equipment, movements, styles, debates and groupings which helped photography develop from being ‘a solution in search of a problem’ when first invented, to the essential communication tool, creative medium, and recorder of everyday life which it had become by the dawn of the twentieth century. The sheer breadth of coverage in the 1200 essays makes the Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography an essential reference source for academics, students, researchers and libraries worldwide.

Mobilitätsuntersuchungen und Belastungsmessungen an Oberschenkelamputierten

Author: Simone Oehler

Publisher: Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG

ISBN: 3110267861

Category: Medical

Page: 546

Die aktuelle Norm zur Strukturprüfung von Prothesen der unteren Gliedmaßen beruht auf Messdaten der 70er Jahre. Seit damals hat sich die Prothesentechnik weiterentwickelt und damit die Patientenmobilität erhöht. Um heutige Prothesenkomponenten funktionell und sicher zu gestalten, ist es notwendig, ihren Einsatz im Feld durch den Amputierten zu kennen. Dazu wurde von der Autorin ein mobiles Messsystem entwickelt, das in Exo-Prothesen integriert werden kann, und mit welchem in einer einjährigen Langzeitstudie an 15 Oberschenkelamputierten Nutzungs- bzw. Belastungsdaten aufgezeichnet wurden. Simone Oehler wertet in ihrer Dissertation diese Messdaten nach unterschiedlichen Fragestellungen aus, um zukünftig Design, Funktion und insbesondere Prüfung realitätsbezogen zu gestalten. Die Ergebnisse ermöglichen es, die mechanischen Beanspruchungen der Prothese nach Art, Dauer und Häufigkeit zu erfassen sowie die Prothesennutzung und Probandenaktivität zu quantifizieren. Die Prüfparameter können so nach der geltenden Norm hinsichtlich Aktualität bzw. notwendiger Änderungen bewertet werden. Die erhaltenen Messdaten tragen längerfristig zu einer Weiterentwicklung von Prüfverfahren bei. Weiterhin kann Einfluss auf die Dimensionierung und nutzungsgerechte Gestaltung von Funktions- und Strukturteilen genommen werden, um diese nach den Prinzipien des beanspruchungsgerechten Konstruierens auszulegen. Auch kann mit Hilfe der Messergebnisse eine genauere Prognose über einen sinnvollen Versorgungszeitraum und die Lebensdauer eines Produktes erfolgen, wodurch insgesamt die Sicherheit des Amputierten verbessert wird.

Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change

Author: Philip Brookman,Eadweard Muybridge,Marta Braun,Corey Keller,Rebecca Solnit

Publisher: Steidl / Edition7L


Category: Photography

Page: 359

Photographer Eadweard Muybridge was above all an innovator who played a groundbreaking role in the creative transformation of late nineteenth-century American and European culture. He pushed the limits of existing technology between 1850 and the dawn of the twentieth century, a time of rapid social and political change. Inspired by a complex set of goals that were artistic, scientific, commercial, and above all personal in nature, Muybridge reinterpreted the grand landscape traditions of photography, surveyed the construction of Western railroads, depicted the growth of the Pacific Coast of the United States, and documented the Modoc War and Central American agriculture. He then developed the ability to freeze photographic sequences describing human and animal locomotion, and reanimated these in some of the first projected motion pictures. Muybridge helped alter and expand our understanding of the world, yet the full complexity of his art is little known today. Born in England in 1830, Eadweard Muybridge immigrated to the United States in the early 1850s and began his career as a photographer in San Francisco in 1867. He radically reinvented the aesthetic and technical capabilities of the camera and in doing so gave us a new way to conceive of motion, time, and space. Today, the impact of Muybridge's art can be found in many places, from Thomas Edison's kinetoscope viewer and Marcel Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase to the poignant paintings of Francis Bacon, the blockbuster film The Matrix, and U2's video for their hit song "Lemon." It is interesting now to imagine Muybridge's world, little more than a century ago, when our sense of time was turned upside down for good. Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change constructs a new understanding of Muybridge's innovations and demonstrates his influence as a pioneer of modern art.

Das Bild der Welt in der Bilderwelt

Das erfolgreichste Buch zur Kunst der letzten fünfzig Jahre - jetzt neu auflegt im FISCHER Taschenbuch! Mit seinem legendären Buch ›Sehen. Das Bild der Welt in der Bilderwelt‹ lehrte John Berger uns Anfang der 1970er Jahre, Bilder neu zu sehen. Er analysiert Gemälde nicht isoliert in einer Welt von musealer Ewigkeit, sondern als Gebrauchsmuster der modernen Gesellschaft, die vor allem den weiblichen Körper zur Reklame benutzt. John Berger, der große europäische Erzähler und Essayist, feiert im November 2016 seinen 90. Geburtstag. Seine Essays zu Kunst und Fotografie sind aus der Ästhetik des 20. Jahrhunderts nicht mehr wegzudenken. Meisterhaft finden seine Erzählungen und Romane eine sinnliche Antwort auf die Frage, wie wir heute leben. »Es gibt niemals genug von John Berger!« Tilda Swinton
