MECH 496 Musculoskeletal Biomechanics

MECH 496  Musculoskeletal Biomechanics  Units: 3.50  

Develops approaches to musculoskeletal biomechanics, including
experimental and analytical approaches to movement analysis, experimental instrumentation and devices, and biomechanical devices for musculoskeletal disorder rehabilitations. Analysis of the contribution of external loading, forces generated by muscles and constraints provided by other musculoskeletal
structures to predict forces and stresses in musculoskeletal joints and tissues. Numerical and modelling approaches, including inverse dynamics, and optimization, and determination of segmental inertial properties.
Biomechanical devices including upper limb and lower limb orthotics and prosthetics. Applications in orthopedic engineering, movement assessment, ergonomics, joint injury and replacements, and biomechanical system design. Application of machine learning in biomechanics and human movement
analysis. Students are presumed to have had a sound introduction to biomechanics, typically acquired from MECH 394.
