Part 1 of a webinar series designed to survey biomechanics; starting with its core components of kinematics, kinetics, and neuromuscular activation and progressing to their application within research and industry.

In Session 1 of this webinar series sponsored by NORAXON USA, John Cockroft and Coleman Bessert review the basic principles of biomechanics and how the study of human movement has evolved over time. Presenters highlighted examples in applied kinematics, applied kinetics and applied neuromuscular/motor control and demonstrate how methodologies vary depending on the field of study or area of expertise. Both researchers and applied practitioners will appreciate that technology advancements and integration afford true data collection and analysis of natural movement, a critical concept when assessing an individual person; a larger cohort of individuals or a group of subjects.
