Lecture contents

- Basics of kinematics: nomenclature of orientation to the individual, as well as movements around axes and planes; position-related and action-related activity of the musculature, balance reactions, continuing movements, basics of movement analysis.
- Fundamentals of Biomechanics: Fundamentals of kinetics, dynamics and statics and their application in biomechanical motion analysis; elementary mechanical loading cases including their calculation, load-dependent behavior of biological tissues including injury patterns.
- Motor learning: Physiological and anatomical basics of movement execution and control; explanation of terms, learning phases and steps, factors influencing learning and evidence-based recommendations for motor learning.
