Biomechanics of Human Movement
B M E 415
( 3 Credits )
An overview of experimental and modeling techniques used to study human movement. Specific topics will include locomotion, motion capture systems, force plates, muscle mechanics, musculoskeletal modeling, three dimensional kinematics, inverse dynamics, forward dynamic simulation and imaging based biomechanics. Homework and laboratory activities will be conducted that emphasize applications of movement biomechanics in orthopedics and rehabilitation. The course will culminate in a class project related to each student's research interests.
