KPE263H1: Introductory Biomechanics

Students will be introduced to basic biomechanical concepts used in human movement analyses. Fundamental laws and principles of motion will be covered in the first half of the course; biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system will be covered in the second half. Examples will be provided throughout to demonstrate how knowledge of anatomical and mechanical factors that affect movement is applicable to the restoration, enhancement, and maintenance of health, fitness, and performance. Related professional and research opportunities will also be highlighted.
