Overview

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 in testing, analysing and evaluating human movement and designing programs

This course examines 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. It provides the opportunity to analyse the 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.

This course contains a mandatory residential school for external students and mandatory on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students.
