Your body is remarkable. Your muscles and skeleton allow you to move in all sorts of ways - walking, running, jumping, dancing. This talk explains what’s happening, and how people can adapt to keep moving as they get older or live with disability.
I Like to Move It- the mechanics of moving our bodies
Dr Siobhan Strike (Reader in Biomechanics)
Biomechanics is the science of movement. It explains how our muscles contract to make us move, and how the forces, like gravity, affect our movements. This session introduces biomechanics, exploring the forces affecting our movement and how we measure them. It explains how different movements happen, and how people who lose their lower limbs can keep active using prostheses.
I Want to keep Moving - age-based biomechanics of running
One thing for sure is that we physically age which effects our running performance and injury. Therefore the session examines and explores the age-based running biomechanics and how we can minimise the rate of decline in performance and reduce the incidence of injury.
