The biomechanics minor begins with the study of the human musculoskeletal system which is responsible for the physical form, support, stability and locomotion of the human body. This is then followed by biomechanics study in sports application and in depth study of human movement quantification. The final unit focuses on how the brain deals with the sensorimotor control requirements for safe movement, and the disorders that arise if brain dysfunction should occur.
