Biomechanical Analysis of Movement - EXSS2018

Year - 2018

The main emphasis of this unit is in developing practical expertise in techniques for the biomechanical analysis of human movement. Students will learn how to conduct kinematic and kinetic analyses, using video, force platforms and electromyography. Other components of this unit are aimed at further development of mathematical and problem-solving skills for the analysis of movement. Topics include static and dynamic equilibrium, calculation of centre of mass, determination of joint torques using inverse dynamics, electromyography, tissue mechanics and gait analysis.

Classes
2-hr lecture/week, 1-2-hrs tutorial or practical/week

Assessment
movement analysis assignment (25%), mid semester exam (30%), end of semester exam (45%)
