Biomechanics provides essential information on the safest and efficient movement patterns and relevant exercise to improve human motion. Therefore, kinesiology and biomechanics work together to help determine what exercise, should a person do, how the workout should be conducted, how effective it is and if the exercise is safe. Biomechanics act as a tool for studying kinesiology.
Through the study of kinesiology, the sport professional are capable of learning various body motion mechanisms. They can determine the structure of the musculoskeletal system and their mechanical properties that aid body movement. The biomechanical qualitative and quantitative analysis also provides vital information to analyze human movements to improve effectiveness. The analysis in both quantitative and qualitative involves identification of the factors that affect human movement performance which is interpreted and solved through high levels of critical thinking. The procedure is useful for sports professionals in understanding body motions. Lastly, the study of biomechanics fundamentals such as mechanics, dynamic such as kinematics and kinetics are all vital in explaining the human body movement. For example, a sports professional will use fluid mechanics to study swimming, heart valves, or adapting sports equipment to minimize air ...Show more
