The comparable book by Duane Knudson goes more into depth of the history of Biomechanics, extending it in length. The fundamentals explained through case studies and illustrations are covered by both. Both provide sample questions with problems suitable for students, with the exception of being twice the price. David Winter’s book has a more thorough and specific appendixes which includes all mathematics needed serving as a great reference for understanding and applying the Biomechanics principles fully.
This book covers the outline of the our Signal Processing & Linear Systems book by David Winter, except that it is significantly more in depth at seven times the price. The material in David Winter’s textbook has been tested on kinesiology graduate students for the past 20 years with very successful results.

Whittle’s Gait Analysis is the most comparable textbook although it does not compare Human Gait in elderly versus young adults. David Winter’s affordable textbook is priced lower with more human gait analysis coverage.

Each book not only has solved samle numerical problems in most chapters, but also has problem sets at the end of each chapter with answers available for odd-numbered problems. As even-numbered problmes are suitable for assignments, the answers to all problems are available to professors. The books are well illustrated and are in metric measurement.
