Syllabus

This unit is designed to introduce the field of Biomechanics to students. During the first half of the semester the unit content centres primarily on mechanical theory, focussing on how these concepts can be applied to the human body. In the second half of the semester the subject content focuses analysis of human movement including, walking, running and swimming.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Evaluate the mechanical factors that influence human movement;

2. Appraise the biomechanics of the human musculoskeletal system with particular emphasis on joint function; and

3. Conduct a qualitative biomechanical analysis and formulate meaningful feedback concerning technique modification.
