This course outlines the mechanical principles underlying human movement as they apply to the unique needs of clients across a range of populations and requirements. Practical and theoretical aspects will be incorporated in testing, analysing and evaluating human movement and designing programs.
This course addresses biomechanics and its relationship to humans in movement across a range of groups in the population. It outlines the theoretical basis of human performance and provides practical opportunities to measure human performance. This course also provides the opportunity for students to analyse data and design programs to meet the specific needs of clients. The importance of research in biomechanics for best practice and the interaction with relevant discipline areas will be presented. Finally, this course will provide knowledge and skills relevant to advanced biomechanics research design and practices.
This course contains a mandatory residential school for external students and mandatory on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students. To pass this course, students must attend at least 5 of the 6 residential school sessions or fortnightly laboratory classes. Student non-compliance with the attendance requirement will mean the student cannot pass the course.
