KIN2062Introductory Biomechanics3 ch (3C) (EL)

This is an introductory course covering the anatomical factors and physical laws that govern human movement. The course focuses on quantitative techniques for analysis of full-body and multi-segment human motions, and the force systems that cause and resist these motions. Students will gain the necessary background and skills for understanding and applying biomechanical concepts in practice, by developing the skills required to translate problems in human movement into a biomechanical framework for quantitative analysis, and applying biomechanical concepts to solve problems in the rehabilitation and sport sciences. 

Prerequisites: BIOL 1711 and MATH 1003 and MATH 1503
