EXSC 436

Advanced Biomechanics

A scientific foundation of the study of human motion will be exploredas it relates to the integration of concepts and principles from biology and physics. The mechanicalbasis of human motion as it relates to the force-motion interaction, the motor system, and the adapt-ability of the motor system will be investigated. The student will become familiar with the equip-ment commonly used in biomechanics including force platforms, motion analysis, electromyographyand isokinetic strength testing.

Prerequisites: PHYS 111 or 121, EXSC 336, or permission of the instructor.
