MEGN 435/535 · Modeling and Simulation of Human Movement

Course Content · This course includes investigation of musculoskeletal properties to construct detailed computer models and simulations of human movement. This course is generally offered in spring semesters.

Prerequisites · MEGN 315 and MEGN 330, or consent of the instructor

MEGN 532 · Experimental Methods in Biomechanics

Course Content · This course is intended to provide an introduction to experimental methods in biomechanical research. Topics include motion capture, ground reaction force data collection, electromyography, inverse dynamics calculations and hypothesis testing. The course culminates in individual class projects combining several experimental measurement techniques. This course is generally offered in fall semesters.

Prerequisites · Graduate student standing
