This course provides students with a background in the fundamental biomechanical principles that describe and govern human movement. Topics of the course will include friction, linear and angular motion, tissue mechanical properties, conservation of energy, work and power, fluid mechanics, stability and center of gravity, walking and running gait analysis. These topics are taught by quantitatively analyzing human movements through the use of modern biomechanical analyses including dynamometry, electromyography, accelerometry, and optical motion analysis. Prereq: BMS 507, BMS 508, EXSC 621 or permission. Exercise Science, Athletic Training major or instructor permission.
Department Approval Required. Contact Academic Department for permission then register through Webcat.
