ENGG 106 - Biomechanics of Human Movement

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course will examine human locomotion from the level of muscle force-production all the way to the system level of whole-body locomotion. Topics will include muscle’s unique structure-function relationship; the impact of musculoskeletal geometry on the transformation of muscle force to joint torques; the kinematics, kinetics and muscle activity patterns of normal walking; the measurement systems used in human motion analysis; and the applications of and approaches to modeling human locomotion. The course aims to expose students to the breadth of the field of human movement biomechanics and is relevant to work in musculoskeletal biomechanics, motor control and rehabilitation.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
ENGG 026  or permission of instructor. May not be taken on a Pass/D+/D/Fail basis.
