Mechanical Levers and Engineering Principles

In the world of Physics, there exist three different types of levers based on the load point and where the fulcrum is.  Since we chiropractors rely heavily upon levers to do what we do, we were taught these concepts in our Biomechanics course.  One of the instructors of the course asked me around the time of my graduation if I wouldn’t mind illustrating Vert demonstrating the three different types of levers for her upcoming lecture manual.  In addition, she wanted Vert demonstrating some of the engineering principles that apply to spinal biomechanics.  Below are my rough sketches for this project, and by clicking here you can see the finished products with additional information.
