KIN 608 - Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury


Units: 4
Examining the structure, composition and material behavior of the skeletal tissues, including bone, cartilage, tendon, ligament and muscle. Analysis of injury and degenerative changes associated with aging. Problem-based approach.

Strongly Recommended Preparation: Undergraduate Biomechanics.
Possible Instructional Methods: Entirely On-ground.
Grading: A-F grading only.
Student Learning Outcomes - Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:
  1. Understand and discuss normal mechanical function of muscle, bone, tendon, ligament and cartilage.
  2. Understand and discuss pathomechanics of injury and aging on muscle, bone, tendon, ligament and cartilage.
  3. Discuss current research topics in skeletal tissue biomechanics.
  4. Discuss experimental approaches used to assess skeletal tissue mechanics.
  5. Critically analyze current literature and utilize this literature to address common questions.
  6. Apply the knowledge of skeletal tissue biomechanics to current problems within the rehabilitation and fitness setting.
