This course explores practical applications of biomechanics to equip students to support athletes to enhance sporting performance and minimise injury occurrence. Students will gain an understanding of the use of analytical methods and tools to make quantitative measurements and apply the principles of biomechanics to measuring and supporting performance.
After completing this course, successful students will be able to: 1. Make quantitative measurements and report results for analysis of vector quantities such as velocity and force.2. Use biomechanical principles to carry out measurements of performance and present these in a manner that is appropriate for discussion with end users (coaches and athletes).3. Make qualitative assessments of biomechanical information in a range of concepts including analysis of human motion.4. Carry out a biomechanical assessment of an athlete’s skilled performance using video analysis software.
