Synopsis:

The aim of the study is to explain structure and behaviour of body muscles from biomechanical and control point of view. The subject consists of following parts: muscle structure, mechanism of muscle contraction, reological properties of muscle, power output of muscle, muscle contraction control, muscle systém, muscle coordination, cooperation of basic human motorics. The study focus also on the pathobiomechanics of the muscle and use problem oriented methods.

Requirements:

Biomechanics I, Biomechanics II, Biophysics

Syllabus of lectures:
