BMED 4540 - Biomechanics II

Examines biomechanics of human body movement through developing various models (e.g., lumped mass, planar rigid body, 3D) and exploring current techniques in Forward and Inverse Dynamic approaches. Topics are developed on a classical mechanics foundation, and simulations are constructed using software (e.g., OpenSIM) to describe normal movements, and investigate possible sources of abnormalities due to injury, disease, or dysfunction.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: BMED 2540  or equivalent, junior/senior standing, or instructor permission.

When Offered: Fall term annually.

Credit Hours: 4
