M E 415: Biomechanics of Human Movement

  • Catalog Description:
    An overview of experimental and modeling techniques used to study human movement. Specific topics will include locomotion, motion capture systems, force plates, muscle mechanics, musculoskeletal modeling, three dimensional kinematics, inverse dynamics, forward dynamic simulation and imaging based biomechanics. Homework and laboratory activities will be conducted that emphasize applications of movement biomechanics in orthopedics and rehabilitation. The course will culminate in a class project related to each students research interests.
  • Credits: 3
  • Prerequisites: Senior or graduate standing, ME 240, ME 340, BME 315

    Moodle and D2L are being retired. Already, many Engineering courses are in Canvas rather than Moodle. Rather than using the Moodle links below, it is recommended that you use the Learn@UW site (learnuw.wisc.edu) to gain access to all of the LSM choices available to campus.
