The Human Machine, The anatomical structure and mechanism of the human body
Bridgman supplements his anatomical work with comparative drawings of simple machines to illustrate how bones and muscle structures are responsible for movement and body shape. Bridgman's approach to the subject is important and unique. The 'Human Machine' gives students and artists the conception of the human structure as a series of complex machines and shows how bone and muscle structures are solely responsible for our movements and body shape. In each section Bridgman starts with the skeletal components of the system: then he adds the muscles, shows the changes in the muscles as the body moves and, finally, shows the appearance of the bodily section in movement.
