Applied Sports Biomechanics


This module will provide students with an in depth knowledge and understanding of the biomechanics of sports performance, sports equipment and footwear. Quantitative and qualitative movement analysis methodologies will be explored and critiqued.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Describe and justify the role of biomechanics in sport and exercise performance

  2. Inspect, evaluate and summarise the biomechanical properties of sports equipment and footwear

  3. Describe and critically assess the biomechanical basis of sports-specific movements

  4. Apply and critique quantitative movement analysis technologies to a range of sports-specific movements

  5. Apply and critique qualitative analysis methodologies to a range of sports-specific movements
