Course objectives
The subject introduces students to Kinesiology and Biomechanics of human motor system tissues. The main aim is to understand physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms of adaptation resp. maladaptation of human tissues to different types of stimuli. Acquired knowledge is applied to specific diagnostic and treatment procedures of particular human tissues and motor system as a whole. It is an essential subject for future completion of Diagnostics and Therapy of musculoskeletal Disorders 1-4.
Learning outcomes
Successful completion of the subject guarantees student's ability to:
- understand kinesiology relations;
- understand principles of special examination and therapy techniques;
- the study of this subject prepares students to clinical activities
