Applied Biomechanics: Concepts And Connections

Designed to provide students with an understanding of applied scientific analysis of movement. Examines the physiological, structural, and mechanical bases for human movement, with examples drawn from sport and rehabilitation. Lectures concentrate on a scientific approach to mechanisms underlying human movement and to strategies and practices of clinical and sport applications. Laboratory sessions focus on both theoretical and applied aspects of selected mechanical concepts. Two lecture hours and one and one-half laboratory hours a week for one semester. Prerequisite: Kinesiology 424K and Mathematics 305G, 408K, 408C, or 408N.

Applied Biomechanics: Concepts and Connections


Fundamental biomedical research technologies with specific focus on cellular and molecular methodologies. Examples include DNA and protein analysis and isolation, microscopy, cell culture and cellular assays. Combines both theoretical concepts and hand-on practical experience via lectures and wet labs, respectively. Specific applications as applied to biotechnology and medicine will also be outlined and discussed.

Nerve displacement has been reported in both longitudinal and transversal directions. Neural mobilization (Martinez-Paya et al., 2015), neural gliding (Echigo et al., 2008) and neural tensioning (Coppieters et al., 2009) techniques were adopted within the included studies and in all cases displacements were observed. To be noted that in the study of Coppieters et al. (2009) a comparison between neural gliding and tensioning was performed, and greater nerve excursion was observed in the first of the two analysed conditions. The first segments of the nerve which experience movement are those close to the moved joint and if this latter continues its movement to greater ROMs, the nerve will start gliding more distantly from the point movement is applied (Topp and Boyd, 2006). However, peripheral nerves are usually lying in a slack position which allows the nerve to initially straighten and subsequently be exposed to tensile forces (Warner et al., 2020). This mechanism allows joint movements and ROM improvements beyond those (6 to 20%) above described (Behm, 2018). Another factors which influences nerve movement is the nerve bed length (Dilley et al., 2007). Shorter the bed length, less movement is observed and greater the tension the nerve will suffer during its lengthening. To be noted that nerves usually cross joints on the flexing side which preserves it from excessive lengthening. Two exceptions are the ulnar and sciatic nerve which cross their respective joints on the extensor side. As a result these are particularly susceptible to mechanical stress (Sunderland, 1978). A review analyzing nerve biomechanics (Topp and Boyd, 2006) describes the anatomical connections of peripheral nerves to outer connective tissues and how these interact to protect and fix the nerve to other anatomical surrounding tissues. Modifications of the connective tissue environment may cause nerve movement limitations, evoke pain or cause injury to the nerve (Stecco et al., 2019). Another recent systematic review has discussed the role of nerve excursion during limb movements, partially taking into account stretching studies. Within the study it is discussed that peripheral nerves have an enormous adaptability during movement, since the continuity of the nervous system through the body (Szikszay et al., 2017). However, the authors report that almost no investigation has examined specific adaptations of peripheral nerves after stretching interventions. Interestingly, when healthy populations are compared to pathological cohorts concerning nerve displacement, for example in entrapment pathologies as the carpal tunnel syndrome, these latter show reduced nerve excursion (Wang et al., 2014) often associated to pain. However, when interventions are carried to treat the pathology, nerve excursion increases and pain decreases (Schrier et al., 2019). Therefore, the adaptability of nerves to movement and stretching may have implications regarding the onset of pain (Schrier et al., 2019; Wang et al., 2014).

The CNLS was formally set up by the Council of The University of Leedson November 17th 1984. Its creation was motivated by therecognition that scientific research in a number of fields across a widerange of disciplines was dependent on, or could be illuminated by,the ideas and concepts associated with the applied mathematics oflow-order nonlinear dynamics and by the wish to exploit the rapidlydeveloping advances in that area. The Centre was built upon, andformalised, a number of existing collaborations within theuniversity and sought to share appropriate expertise betweensuch groups and to develop and foster further collaboration,particularly across traditional academic disciplines.

Psychology for Dancers: Theory and Practice to Fulfil Your Potential examines how psychological theory can be related to dance practice. Aimed at the dancer who wants to maximize their potential but has no grounding in psychology, the book begins with an examination of basic psychological concepts, approaches and methods, before applying theory to dance. The book explores why dance is so important in many peoples lives: as a form of fitness, a profession, or visual entertainment. Each chapter then examines a different aspect of psychology related to dance in an applied context. Self-perception is examined as dancers are under great scrutiny; a grounded sense of self will ensure a positive perception of self-worth and body image, and suggestions are made as to how a healthy and motivational climate can be created. The book also places an emphasis on how cognitive skills are as important as technical skills, including the ability to learn and recall steps and choreography as efficiently as possible. Social factors are related to the dance context, with a discussion of effective leadership and communication skills and the importance of group cohesion. Finally, there is a review of the impact of emotions on dance practice and how best to manage these emotions. Each chapter reviews important psychological theories, offering practical suggestions on how they can be applied to dance practice. Psychology for Dancers is an invaluable resource for students, professionals, and teachers of dance. 041b061a72
