Human Biomechanics BPK 840 (3)

Review the theoretical basis and tools of biomechanics and to examine how biomechanics research can contribute to our understanding of the cause, prevention and treatment of disease and injury and how biomechanics relates to neural control of movement. Topics will include static equilibrium, equations of motion, stability, inverse and forward dynamics, vibration and impact, mechanical properties of tissues, muscle models, feedback and feedforward control, impedance control and internal dynamics models. Students with credit for KIN 806 may not take this course for further credit.
