This subject expands on previously learnt biomechanical principles integral to the study of human motion. Quantitative problems are further developed and a major biomechanical research project is conducted. The subject focuses on developing the practical skills required to scientifically analyse sport and exercise techniques, enhance performance and prevent injuries. The practical ability to analyse and evaluate human movement using biomechanics principles is a major component.
