Applied Sport Biomechanics


The Applied Sport Biomechanics module is an optional module within the Sport and Exercise Science and Sport Coaching programmes that advances the knowledge and practical skills gained from the previous year.  This module equips students with theoretical and practical biomechanical principles that underlie contemporary issues and current practices in biomechanics.  Students will explore biomechanical measurement techniques (such as electromyography, kinematics, kinetics, and portable/wearable devices) applied to human movement analyses within an injury prevention (e.g. gait analysis and landing mechanism) and performance (e.g. running, golf, etc.) context.

This is an SCQF Level 10 module and upon successful completion, participants will be awarded 20 credits.



This module will be blended learning.  A full timetable will be published in advance of course commencement.
