EXSC 3760 Biomechanics of Human Movement with Lab
(HC) College Health Care Sciences
(HHHP) HC - Health & HumanPerformance
This course provides the application of mechanical concepts to movement problems in sport, rehabilitation, and fitness. The anatomical and mechanical principles that dictate the limits and potential of human movement will be addressed. There is an overlying theme of movement observation, interpretation, and remediation with regard to biomechanics. Includes a laboratory component. Prerequisite: EXSC 3700. Frequency: Every Fall and Winter. (Description Last Updated: Summer I 2016 (201650))
- Demonstrate knowledge of appropriate linear and angular kinematic concepts such as velocity and acceleration.
- Demonstrate knowledge of appropriate linear and angular kinetic concepts such as force and momentum.
- Determine how fundamental concepts of biomechanics influence the success of motor performance in various sport, rehabilitation and fitness activities.
- Apply the 4-step model of movement observation to situations in sport, rehabilitation and fitness.
- Demonstrate ability to use a variety of equipment (cameras, force plates, switch plates, electromyography) to measure and interpret human movement data.
- Develop proficiency in using computer software, such as Microsoft Excel and Dartfish, to graphically assess and disseminate a biomechanical analysis.
