BIOMEDE 646 (MECHENG 646) - Mechanics of Human Movement

Instructor: Rouse, Elliott J.
The primary objective of this course is to learn how to analyze, understand, and model human locomotion, as well as develop bio-inspired assistive technologies and assess their impact. We will learn about the human machine—the sensing, acting, and reasoning components of the human neuromusculoskeletal systems, as well as how to replicate this functionality with traditional approaches from robotics, including modeling, machine design, mechatronics, and control.
Prerequisites: MECHENG 540 (AEROSP 540) or MECHENG 543 or equivalent
