This subject introduces students to the biomechanical principles that underpin human movement. It analyses both internal and external forces with respect to the human body and its environment. Emphasis is placed on how various kinematic and kinetic principles can be applied to improve movement skill technique, maximise performance and/or reduce injuries. Through practice-oriented activities such as problem-solving tasks and practical activities, students learn qualitative and quantitative techniques which assist in the analysis of human motion.
