KINS 4250 Biomechanics
3 hours; 3 credits
The principles that influence human motion. Statics, dynamics, kinematics and kinetics applied to the musculoskeletal system of the human body. Emphasis is placed on developing the ability to analyze human motion with the goal of optimizing human movement performance and identifying mechanical factors associated with musculoskeletal injury. A minimum grade of C is required of Department of Kinesiology majors for this course. Lab fee applies.
Prerequisite: Physical Education and Exercise Science/Kinesiology 3281 and 3285 (with a grade of C or better) or the equivalent, Physical Education and Exercise Science/Kinesiology 3290 (with a grade of C or better). Co-requisite: Physical Education and Exercise Science/Kinesiology 4200W.
