Students will further their understanding of functional human anatomy within a clincial perspective. Specific attention towards the principal mechanical and neurological determinants of movement.
Fundamentals of Contemporary Biomechanics
Co-ordinate systems; equilibrium concepts ; free body diagrams ; (applied to human body)principals of kinetics used to develop static and dynamic descriptions of human motion
Kinematic chain systems & functional anatomy
Clinical Anthropometrics, muscle kinesiology , joint configurations , analysis of forces at a skeletal joint for various static and dynamic human actions
Clinical aspects of musculo-skeletal training and Human Movement
Clinical instrumented 2 D gait analyses. Introduction to computational kinematics and inverse dynamics.Motion capture technology,Jump performance analysis. Leveraging and load metrics in strength and conditioning.Mobile applications.
Performance and motor control
Evidence based understanding of how various pathologies impact movement and how interventions can be implemented to aid those effected by movement disorders
