From élite sport to clinical rehabilitation, we are constantly trying to enhance the physical capabilities of the human body. Today, the main tool in this process is movement analysis. This course is a practical exploration of that topic. Following a brief general introduction to Human Movement Sciences and the presentation of a number of two and three-dimensional motion-capture techniques, you move into our extensive laboratory. The Human Movement Analysis course is delivered by Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
Fitted with force plates, treadmills and even a climbing wall, here you collect your own data by performing relatively simple biomechanical experiments. In the second part of the course you analyse that material using MATLAB, a world-renowned numerical computing environment. As well as learning the ins and outs of this unique software tool, you also acquire the basics of digital signal analysis. This course acquaints you with various movement registration techniques and their use in sports and rehabilitation settings. By the end of it you will be able to use the MATLAB programming environment to perform basic digital signal analyses on movement data you have collected yourself.
