This course consists of two components aimed at providing students with knowledge in musculoskeletal anatomy, the relationships between physical activity and sporting performance, and how physical performance can be optimised and injuries minimized through an understanding of physical principles.
1. A series of lectures, demonstrations and laboratories on the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system as it relates to sporting activities. Emphasis is placed on bony, ligamentous and muscular structures that are most likely to be used or damaged in sporting activities.
2 .A series of lectures, demonstrations and laboratories which examine how physical activity and sporting performance can be analysed using basic laws of physics and mechanics. Main topics include muscle actions, joint movements, rectilinear motion, simple mechanics and the biomechanical analysis of specific sporting skills.
|Objectives||1. Obtain an understanding of the human skeleton, including the names of major bones and their surface projections.
2. Obtain an understanding of the muscles of the human body with emphasis placed on the factors that contribute to joint stability.
3. Be aware of the location of major peripheral nerves and blood vessels of the limbs.
4. Understand the patterns of muscle activation that are likely to be observed in activities, such as walking, swimming, throwing, etc.
5. Provide students with a basic understanding of the scientific principles of biomechanics and movement
6. Enable students to apply their knowledge of movement to a range of teaching/coaching situations
7. Provide student with skills which they can use to analyze and improve athletic performance.
