Lecture 2 1/5/2015 4:27:00 PM
Biomechanics
Application of physics to the understanding of the motions and deformations
of body segments, organs, structures, tissues, cells due to forces, pressures,
torques, shears etc.
This is a very wide definition and a very wide field of scientific study.
Go from technically applied coaching to math
Its mechanics (a certain type of physics)
Ex. Flexing the muscle- how the arm is deforming
Linked rigid body biomechanics
Can determine if someone is healthy
Can hand data into surgeons or physiotherapists
Segments b/w each joints aren’t rigid
Bones flex slightly, muscles are flexing/moving
Skeletal biomechanics
Deformation of the facial skeleton after getting one in the kisser.
How the tissue changes shape- its no longer rigid
Vascular biomechanics
Modeling both the deformation of the wall of a blood vessel and the flow of
blood within the vessel. Both are biomechanics.
Look at how blood flows through vessels
Applies to fluid flow & the structure that's holding it in: ex. Elasticity of the
blood vessel that is holding the fluid in
Cellular biomechanics
Measuring the forces with which cells interact with their surroundings.
Can see the forces the cells can withstand
Cells can put force towards its environment
Ex. How do humans go from a blob of cells to which we can take force
We have skeletal structures in the cells
Put cells together- combine all the forces they can take collectively
Linked rigid body biomechanics
The mathematical method used is the same for humans and for robots.
We analyze the body as if we are robots
Assumptions
Body segments are rigid
Good enough for the time being (True-ish)
Segments connect at joints
