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.
Describe and justify the role of biomechanics in sport and exercise performance
Inspect, evaluate and summarise the biomechanical properties of sports equipment and footwear
Describe and critically assess the biomechanical basis of sports-specific movements
Apply and critique quantitative movement analysis technologies to a range of sports-specific movements
Apply and critique qualitative analysis methodologies to a range of sports-specific movements
