Overview

Biomechanics is the study of the mechanics of a living body, and the forces exerted by muscles and gravity on the skeletal structure in order to produce movement. The course examines such concepts as ‘structure’ and ‘function’ relationships in tissues and organs, fundamentals of human kinetics/biomechanics, analysis of forces in human motion, as well as energy and power in human activity. By the completion of the course, students acquire an understanding of:

  • Functional anatomy of the musculoskeletal system
  • Basic dynamics and analyses of human motion
  • Work and Energy methods – Momentum – Kinematic measurement techniques
  • Structure, function, and adaptation of tissues and major organs
  • Biomechanics of the spine – Fryette’s Laws
  • Biomechanics of skeletal muscle
  • Biomechanics of skeletal articulations
  • Biomechanics of upper and lower extremity
  • A fundamental strength of materials in biological tissues

The main topics include structure and function relationships in tissues and organs, the application of stress and strain analysis to biological tissues, analysis of forces in human function and movement, as well as energy and power in human activity. Concepts of statics and dynamics help students grasp the principles of biomechanics. Special focus is placed on the functional anatomy, mechanical properties and structural behaviours of the spine, limbs, and major joints.

Very good course! Watching video tutorials was most helpful in understanding the basics of biomechanics.
