DEFINITIONS
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.
Linked rigid body biomechanics: divide body into different segments, assume all segments are rigid,
extremely simplified model of movements.
The mathematical method used is the same for humans and for robots
Use of X-rays enables viewing structures of interest.
Assumptions:
1. Body segments are rigid
2. Segments are connected by joints
3. Joints have a well- defined number of 'degrees of freedom'
Application:
Coaching
Rehabilitation
Orthopaedic, plastic and reconstructive surgery
Ergonomics in the workplace
Human- machine interactions (i.e. car design)
Clothing, fashion (how your clothing interacts with your body, how it hangs properly, etc.)
Animation

Skeletal biomechanics: Deformation of the facial skeleton after getting one on the kisser
Analyze how the bones deflect impact.
Vascular biomechanics: modeling both the deformation of the wall of a blood vessel AND the flow of
blood within the vessel. Both are biomechanics (links to linked rigid body mechanics).
Cellular biomechanics: measuring the forces within which cells interact with their surroundings. How
cells can affect their environment
