Course objectives
The aim of the course is to explain the basic measurement methods in biomechanics; students will take part in selected kinematic or dynamic measurement and obtain information about data evaluation. This course provides an overview of biomechanical analysis possibilities in various sports.
Learning outcomes
At the end of Data Analysis in Biomechanics course, students should be able: to formulate biomechanical research problem; establish a procedure for its solution; understand and explain which data can be obtained from the kinematic and dynamic measurements; based on acquired knowledge this data to process and interpret.
  • work with literature in the field of biomechanics; research in biomechanics; measurement methods; kinematic analysis; dynamic analysis; accelerometry; Simi Motion; Emed; Bertec; work with the biomechanical data - tables; graphs; basic statistical processing; interpretation of the results of biomechanical measurements
