Module Aims: To extend upon the students knowledge and abilities in understanding the biomechanical factors affecting injury (cause and prevention), how they can be assessed and reduced.
1. Explain the relationship between relative excessive loading on a tissue and increased risk of tissue injury.
2. Discuss the underlying cause of injury in at least one sport
3. Critically discuss the importance of biomechanics in injury causation and prevention
4. Explain how biomechanical functional abnormalities may predispose to injury during gait
5. Demonstrate a proficiency in presentation skills
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
