- Sport biomechanics is the science of explaining how and why the human body moves in the way that it does. In sport and exercise, that definition is often extended to also consider the interaction between the performer and their equipment and environment.
- Learning Outcome
Describe human movement using appropriate terms and concepts.
Apply biomechanical principles to human locomotion, activities of dailyliving and dynamic sporting skills.
Analyse and interpret correctness of movements of the human body during sport and exercise activities.
Apply biomechanics to establish the equipment requirements in high performance sport, rehabilitation and sport technology applications.
Use the knowledge of Biomechanics to prevent sports related injuries and also to enhance performance in exercise and sports activities.
Comprehend and apply advanced theory based understanding of bio-engineering fundamentals and specialist bodies of knowledge to enhance the performance in sports.
Disseminate the findings of bio mechanical experiments ethically, clearly and succinctly.
