Biomechanics of Human Joints and Spine



Dr. G. DumasRoom 323B, McLaughlin 533-2648

Course Description

This course will start with a description of the relevant anatomy, followed by the kinematics and kinetics of synovial joints and the spine. Methods of engineering analysis will include motion analysis and different types of modelling. Applications from industrial ergonomics and biomechanical engineering in areas such as low back pain and artificial joint replacement will be discussed. Three term-hours, lectures. G. Dumas.
