This course is designed to explore the theoretical basis of clinical biomechanics and expose students to the skills necessary to work in the area. Special emphasis is in the areas of: Posture and Balance, Gait, and Orthopedic Biomechanics of the lower limb. Lectures cover the theory underlying normal musculoskeletal and neural control system function using physics and engineering concepts. Clinical and pathological examples are discussed to highlight differences from the healthy state, and explore how these differences arise. Labs provide the opportunity to apply the theory. Prerequisites: PHYS 1206/07, PHED 4136. (CST/Lec 3, Lab 3) cr 3.
