Synopsis:

The aim of the Biomechanics of aging and pathobiomechanics course is to present current knowledge of the theory of human aging and etiology and pathogenesis of diseases correlated with advanced age. Age-related changes in the mechanical properties of the living organs and tissues are emphasized and an effect of changed mechanical properties on the function of organs is explained in detail.
