Synopsis:

The aim of the course is to introduce students to the areas of biomechanics. These are circuits of clinical, sports and orthopaedic biomechanics. In particular, the students will be introduced to methods of measurement in experimental biomechanics, biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system, assessment of movement in biomechanics and rehabilitation, assessment of gait and standing still, assessment of work and performance, force and moment effects, anthropometry, material properties, loading methods, deformation and modelling of biomaterials, rheological models of tissues. Students will also learn about the areas of orthosis and prosthesis design and ergonomics in relation to biomechanics.

Requirements:

Credit conditions - 70% attendance at the exercises, submission of 70% of one-page protocols from the exercises. The submitted protocols will meet the standards of the formal level and professional level of the final year of bachelor studies at the university. The formal and professional level of the protocols will be evaluated by a grading grade of A to F, which will be reflected in the exam (20%).

Examination: fulfillment of the credit requirements, demonstration of knowledge corresponding to the material presented in the form of a written test containing both theoretical questions (three) and numerical examples (three). It is possible to obtain 0.5 or 1 point for each question. The written test will be graded A-F. A minimum of 3 points is required for an E and 5 or more points is required for an A. The final grade will reflect the grade on the final paper and reports turned in during the semester. In the event of an ambiguous grade of A through F, an oral examination will follow.

Exam question outlines:

The subject of biomechanics and its subdivisions, Mathematical and physical methods in biomechanics, Measurement methods in experimental biomechanics, Movement assessment in sports biomechanics and rehabilitation, Clinical biomechanics, Biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system, Characteristics of biomaterials and biocompatible materials, Definition of biomaterials, Orthotics and prosthetics, Stresses and prosthesis design, Intelligent prostheses
