Description
INTRODUCTION TO REHABILITATION ENGINEERING DESIGNS
Material at introductory graduate level. Fundamentals of biomechanics with specific application to rehabilitation. Basic mechanics (newton's laws, statics, dynamics) and vector algebra (forces, moments, equilibrium) will form the first part of the course. The middle section focuses on kinematics and kinetics applied to biomechanics. The final section examines work/energy methods and stress/strain problems. Sets are assigned regularly and there are lab exercises/demonstrations.
