Biomechanics of the Body

The human body performs a large range of movements every day. Elite athletes perform even more complex movements in the most efficient ways possible with the input from sports scientists known as biomechanists. Biomechanics is the study of how the physical laws of mechanics apply to human movement. This program investigates the basic concepts of movement and applies these to human performance. It includes: forces, levers, motion, friction, balance and stability. A teacher's guide is available.
