Planned learning activities and teaching methods
The course is taught through lectures explaining the basic principles and theory of the discipline. Exercises are focused on practical topics presented in lectures.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
Active participation in exercises. The course is completed by a graded credit. The classification is made on the basis of quality elaboration of assigned tasks and the result of the final test.
Language of instruction
To acquaint students with parts of the human body in terms of biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system. To define elements of the human body and relationships between elements in terms of biomechanical problems on individual parts. To acquaint students with the mechanical properties of elements of the musculoskeletal system and with problems in the field of the musculoskeletal system solved in the past and present at the Institute of Solid mechanics, Mechatronics and Biomechanics. As part of the exercise to deal with the solution of selected biomechanical problems and problems in the field of the musculoskeletal system.
