  Syllabus 9996001201 - BIOMECÁNICA

CODE
9996001201

COURSE
Biomechanics

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The subject Biomechanics is quarterly, and is taught in the 2nd course of the Degree in Physiotherapy.


COURSE TYPE
Basic

ECTS CREDITS
6

CONTEXT

The aim of this course is so that the student understands the basic biomechanical concepts, applying them to certain motor actions such as human balance and gait. It even includes disorders that occur in pathological gait, enabling the student to carry out an exhaustive observational analysis of the pathological gait of a patient.

With this subject, the student gains the basic biomechanical fundaments to analyze the balance and gait (normal and pathologic).
