Course: ATE 603. Applied Biomechanics and Motor Control (3)
Principles in biomechanics and motor control will be introduced in this course. The course will focus on their applications to assistive technologies and rehabilitation engineering. Basic anatomial movements and neuromuscular control will be reviewed. Pathological human movements associated with common neuromuscular disorders will be discussed in depth. Students will also learn various techniques in kinematics and kinetics analyses of human movements. Biomechanical modeling and simulations will be introduced as well as advanced technologies in anthropometrics.
