Synopsis:

Anotace v AJ

The course is focused on mechanics of musculoskeletal system. Lectures follows heirarchical structure of musculoskeletal system, where knowledge on one level could facilitate understanding of upper levels.

Anatomy and structure of muscle

Molecular basis of muscle contraction

Hill's experiment and muscle model

Advanced rheological models of muscle

Fenomological models of muscle

Muscle groups and muscle redundancy

Inverse dynamic analysis

Optimization of muscular activity

Forward dynamic analysis

Principles of motion capture

Experiment in muscular biomechanics - videoanalysis

Experiment in muscle biomechanics - IMU

Principles of electromyography
