Course specification
Course title Biomechanics
Acronym MS1BMH
Study programme Electrical Engineering and Computing
Module Biomedical and Environmental Engineering
Type of study master academic studies
Lecturer (for classes)
    Lecturer/Associate (for practice)
    Lecturer/Associate (for OTC)
    ESPB 6.0 Status elective
    The goal Introduces students to key notions and concepts of motion biomechanics and its mathematical models.
    The outcome Makes students capable of applying the knowledge to typical problems in human motion - modeling and simulation. Enables collaboration in the field of medicine, biology and sports.
    Contents of lectures ELEMENTS OF ANATOMY. KINEMATICS: Kinematic pairs/chains; Degrees of freedom; internal/external coordinates; kinematic relations; direct/inverse problem; redundancy. DYNAMICS: principles of dynamic modeling (Newton-Euler equations); recursive form of model and computer-aided modeling. SELECTED PROBLEMS: Bipedal gait: stability and zero - moment point; Motion in sports; Handwriting; Grasping.
    Contents of exercises Seminars and homework assignments in the field of practical aspects in biomechanics
