HSC 440 Biomechanics

3 Credits

Students examine the physical characteristics of bone, muscle, and joints in this course. They are also taught the normal and abnormal movement of the human body in relation to forces acting upon it to produce a variety of postures and gait. Through this study, they become knowledgeable in the areas of musculoskeletal anatomy, specifically as those areas relate to gait, throwing, and sport forms. An application of physics to movement [specifically, the use of Newton’s Laws to describe and analyze movement] permeates all course content. In addition, students are also exposed to the latest innovations in motion analysis equipment.
