HK 4610 - Health and Injury Biomechanics W (3-2) [0.50]

This course presents an overview of bone and joint function from a biomechanics perspective, within the framework of health and injury. Particular emphasis is placed on the influence of biomechanical signals on the regulation of bone and joint structure and function. Individual diseases, such as osteoarthritis, will be considered as they impact the various tissues of the joint (cartilage, ligament and bone) and the neuromuscular system. The laboratory will provide supplementary material illustrating particular aspects of musculoskeletal function including in vivo and in vitro biomechanical testing. (Offered in odd-numbered years.)
