ATR 440 Athletic Training 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 gaits. 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 introduced to the latest innovations in motion analysis equipment.

Prerequisite(s): ATR 240 , BIO 130 /BIO 135  and BIO 131 /BIO 136  or BIO 205  /BIO 215  and BIO 206  /BIO 216  (with a minimum grade of “C). Concurrent with:ATR 445 .
