|CREDITS||2 credits during the 1st year of 8747 Preventive and adapted sport and physical Sciences (LM-67) GENOVA|
|SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINARY SECTOR||ING-INF/06|
|TEACHING LOCATION||GENOVA (Preventive and adapted sport and physical Sciences)|
|MODULES||This unit is a module of:|
The course is designed to provide an introduction to biomechanics with emphasis on understanding whole body movements. These concepts are meant to provide the basis of understanding the biomechanics of physical activity. Applications of these concepts in fields such as athletic training, physical therapy, sports science, and human factors will be discussed. A specific focus will be maintained on the specific movement patterns related to different stages of life (infants, adults, elderly)
Upon completion of the course, it is expected that students should be able to:
By the end of the course the student should be able to:
Frontal classes and activities in the movement analysis lab
Reminders on kinematic
Reminders on kinetic
Instrumentation for measuring kinetic and kinematic performance
Stereophotogrammetry: calibration, acquisition, and reconstruction. Errors: instrumental, anatomical landmarks mislocation, and soft tissue artifact. Experimental protocols.
Electromyography: physiology of the signal, recording and acquiring, analyzing and interpreting.
Force Platform: force transducers, processing force platform signals, center of pressure, combining force platform data.
Inertial Sensors: accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, calibration, IMU.
Experimental activity in a movement analysis lab.
Analysis movements, force and posture (equilibrium) and their neural control (muscle activities etc) at different stages of life and during different sport activities/exercises.
Introduction to the personal project
Materials and readings will be distributed via the course website.

The final exam will consist in a oral exam where the student will present her/his research project previously defined with the teacher during the lessons
The oral exam will focus mainly on the topics covered during the lectures and will aim to evaluate not only if the student has reached an adequate level of knowledge, but has acquired the ability to critically analyze problems related to biomechanics and motion analysis that will be placed during the examination.
