Overview

Biomechanics, as a growing field of engineering, has many applications in the health and sport sectors. This broad field of study includes the design of artificial implants, the development of human tissues in the lab, the measurement of human movement and the detection and treatment of pathological conditions, the understanding of the performance of our muscles and how to employ it in sport, the diagnosis of injuries, the imaging of biological tissues and the detection of their pathological state, etc. In this course, the fundamental principles of biomechanics and their application to real life situations will be covered including: basic understanding of the application of mechanical principles in biology, understanding of anatomical and biomechanical terminology, application of biomechanical principles to human movement, basic understanding of the mechanical properties of biological tissues and the techniques used to determine them, and more recent advanced topics such as mechanics of cells, tissue imaging and tissue engineering.

Learning Goals:
• Basic understanding of the application of mechanical principles in biology
• Understanding of anatomical and biomechanical terminology
• Application of biomechanical principles to human movement
• Basic understanding of the mechanical properties of biological tissues such as bone, muscle, ligaments etc. and the techniques used to determine them.
• Learn to use engineering tools (hardware and software) to solve problems in biomechanics
