Biomechanics of Human Movement

SAR HP 565

Biomechanics is a powerful tool for understanding why and how we control and coordinate movement in health and disability. The course is designed to provide a conceptual and theoretical basis of biomechanics using applications so that students will learn to problem solve using a biomechanical thought process. There will be many examples of applications including athletics, orthopedic injuries, central nervous system disorders, designing assistive devices, robotics, pediatrics and aging. The course is suitable for physical therapy, athletic training, anthropology, human physiology, and engineering students and anyone interested in understanding human movement from a quantitative perspective. Emphasis will be placed on how to use the tools of biomechanics along with an understanding of functional anatomy to think about normal and abnormal patterns of movement, and in some cases how this information might be used to guide interventions.
