Work in biomechanics is carried out by the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies, the School of Rehabilitation Therapy and the Department of Mechanical Engineering. These three units offer courses of interest to all students in biomechanics. As well, any given project may include investigators from any of these disciplines meaning often different points of view are advanced for consideration. It also means that along with theoretical work, such as the multivariate analysis of gait waveforms, practical problems from surgery or rehabilitation can be studied.
With the development of the School of Rehabilitation's Motor Control laboratory and the establishment of the Human Mobility Research Centre, this is a very exciting time to be involved with our Biomechanics program and you should contact me if you are interested.
