KIN 320 KIN 320. Applied Biomechanics of Human Movement. 3 Hours.
Designed for applied movement science, health education, and kinesiology majors. Designed to provide students with an understanding of applied scientific analysis of movement. Examines the physiological, structural, and mechanical bases for human movement, with examples drawn from sport and rehabilitation. Lectures concentrate on a scientific approach to mechanisms underlying human movement and to strategies and practices of clinical and sport applications. Laboratory sessions focus on both theoretical and applied aspects of selected mechanical concepts. Two lecture hours and one and one-half laboratory hours a week for one semester. Prerequisite: For athletic training and kinesiology and health education majors: Kinesiology 424K; and Mathematics 305G, 408K, 408C, or 408N. For others: Kinesiology 424K; Biology 446L; and Mathematics 305G, 408K, 408C, or 408N.
