AEXS 622 - Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics

This course seeks to incorporate knowledge in anatomy, physiology and kinesiology/biomechanics for application of classical Newtonian mechanics in assessing the quality of movement to determine limitations and enhance performance.  This course focuses on analysis of linear and angular motion, muscle structure and function during complex tasks, and the relationship between the effective application of force and movement efficiency. This is a fifteen-week course with 45 contact hours. Class meeting times will integrate both didactic lecture and laboratory experience during the class meeting.
