Biomechanics Exam #2
Kinematics- motion based on temporal (time) and spatial (position) information.
Video is an ideal tool for the capture and kinematic analysis of
Time- scalar quantity provides us with the ability to measure and report with
Biomechanics Exam #3
When a body or its segments rotate about an internal (joint) or external axis
an angular position change occurs and the position change requires time.
o Distance- scalar
o Speed - scalar
Biomechanics Exam #1:
Biomechanics- is a science that combines classic mechanical physics and a solid
working knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy to study, evaluate, and improve
upon the movement patterns of living things.
First applied in the 1970s
