In this subject, students extend their foundational knowledge of structural anatomy and apply neuromechanical concepts to the analysis of human motion. These concepts are also used to improve understanding of muscle coordination and function, postural control and stability and factors that contribute to musculoskeletal injury. Practical components involve developing foundational skills that are further developed in a range of biomechanics, motor control and exercise prescription subjects.
