In this subject students develop a theoretical understanding of, and the application of, biomechanical principles related to human movement. Through a series of lectures and practical laboratory classes students are provided with an opportunity to devise, trial, and evaluate strategies related to efficient human performance in sport. Students will analyse sporting techniques using digital video.
