ORT&TRAU 2106 - Fundamentals of Biomechanics and Human Movement

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2022

The course will consist of study in applied biomechanical aspects related to sport and human movement. In summary, this course provides an opportunity to define the biomechanical mechanisms involved in human movement. The course will provide knowledge of: planes and axes of motion, linear and angular kinematics and kinetics of motion, Newton's laws of motion, conservation of momentum and impulse-momentum relationships, centre of gravity, balance and stability, mechanical work, power and energy, fluid dynamics, friction, leverage and materials; sports injuries; measurement techniques, qualitative and quantitative analysis.
