So What’s The Gist? So What’s The Gist? Biomechanics is an area of study which covers considerable breadth. Very interdisciplinary. Research focuses on many systems including animals, plants, and human-machine interfaces. The scope of research runs from the very macro scale (whole body sport performance) to the extreme micro scale (mathematical modeling of human genome function)
