This course explores the methods and underlying principles for the modeling and analysis of human motion. The course begins with the fundamentals of human motion from walking through running. Next, the biology and stimuli needed to produce motion through the coordinated action of musculoskeletal system will be covered. Typical methods used to quantify the kinematics and kinetics of motion will be taught along with optimization techniques needed for analysis. Finally, the simulation of muscle driven locomotion will be taught for walking and running, as well as some discussion of the role of assistive devices.
