MSPO 502 - Kinesiology

2 credit(s)
Kinesiology is the study of human movement. This course presents a first-level integration of the mechanical/ anatomical/neurological bases of human movement. This subject matter is specifically developed for students in the health professions. An interdisciplinary approach is used, integrating materials from anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, and neuroscience. Human movement is studied from the perspective of functional, kinematic, kinetic, and neurological descriptions of single-joint, complex-joint, and multijoint motions. In this regard, topics of gait, posture, and balance receive a special focus. Students work in groups for some course content.
Prerequisite(s): Prosthetics & orthotics major. Corequisite(s): MSPO 503 .
