Analysis of Human Movement and Performance - (15 credits)

This module introduces you to the analysis of human movement and performance which is a cornerstone of effective coaching. Using the laws of motion and your understanding of human anatomy you will learn how to analyse and explain human movement and offer feedback to an athlete or individual that can help them to improve function and performance. You will learn about a range of technologies, including their strengths and limitations, that are used to gather different types of performance data in the laboratory and the field. You will develop data processing and reporting skills essential to analysing human performance, including simple statistical analysis. This module is taught in a very applied way with lots of hands-on data collection and an applied project as the final assessment.
