Aims/Description: Biomechanics of human movement is the science concerned with the internal and external forces acting on the human body and the effects produced by these forces. This module will deal with both the kinematics (the branch of biomechanics of human movement entailing the study of movement from a geometrical point of view) and kinetics (the branch of biomechanics of human movement investigating what causes a body to move the way it does).
