KINE 3000 Lecture Notes - Lecture 2: Kinesiology, Human Musculoskeletal System, Statistical Model
Kine 3030 lecture notes biomechanics of human movement. Kinesiology physiology of motion which describes and analyzes locomotor events; reflects action of mechanical forces. Kinesiology; study of human movement from a scientific point of view. Kinesiology is also broadly defined as the science of movement; contains anatomical, physiological, mechanical, psychological and sociological aspects. Biomechanics science revolved around the system of biological systems from a mechanical point of view; the concept of mechanics involves the analysis of action and force to study functional aspects of a living being. Biomechanics helps address problems correlation with human health and performance. Some of the problems studied through biomechanics include: locomotion patterns, mobility impairment, osteoporosis, nasa, musculoskeletal systems. Mechanics split into 1) static and 2) dynamic. Dynamics are then further divided into kinematics and kinetics. Mechanics = physical sciences explaining rest or motion caused by action. Static mechanics = involved with equilibrium of bodies under forces.
