An overview of current problems in movement biomechanics. After taking this course, students will be able to 1) Describe the engineering tools needed to study human movement 2) Recognize a variety of clinical research and practice, and 3) Use the framework provided by the course to pursue their own self-teaching and research on these topics. Topics covered include muscle mechanics, joint mechanics, EMG and EEG signal applications, ultrasonography and elastography, anthropometry, human movement 3-D kinematics, inverse dynamics, forward dynamics, work, power and energy. Biomechanics tools will be used to investigate clinical problems. Students will also do research projects on related topics.
