As a subdiscipline within the field of kinesiology, biomechanics is still a relatively new area of study. With roots in physical education in the 1970s ( Nelson, 1973 ), biomechanics was initially concerned with the study of sports techniques. Subsequently, biomechanics has developed into an

over time ( Gerbrands et al., 2017 ). Finally, the previous studies have often been limited to kinematic and kinetic gait analysis of subjects with OA before and immediately after intervention ( Gerbrands et al., 2017 ). Despite the valuable information on the biomechanical characteristics of gait

This categorizes the 4 main ways in which undergraduates can be engaged with research and inquiry as research-led (eg, learning about current biomechanics research); research-oriented (eg, developing biomechanics research skills); research-based (eg

Nearly a half century has passed since the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) was officially established at the Pennsylvania State University in 1973. From 1957 to 1978, biomechanics studies in the field of sports and physical education in Japan had been conducted under the name of

I met Dick Nelson for the first time at the third international Seminar of Biomechanics in Rome in 1971, exactly 50 years ago. It was my first international conference. I did not know anybody personally, and I wanted to know who was who. So I enjoyed myself by associating with the people around me

means, toward the attainment of the desired goals” (p. 14). In the broadest sense, it is a ratio of outputs to inputs (i.e., benefits to costs). In the mechanical sense, it is the physical work of a system divided by the energetic demand of that system. Correspondingly, in biomechanics, gross human

personal and all students may not relate to basketball, arts, and storytelling. The field of biomechanics is unique, as this field bridges several STEM fields (biological science, exercise and sports science, health science, ergonomics and human factors, engineering and applied science), 18 and can act as

-sectional differences and monitoring longitudinal changes in maximal dynamic lower-extremity performance. Although the RSI provides simple insight into dynamic lower-extremity performance during a DJ, not much is known about its biomechanical determinants. Beyond the variables of jump height and ground-contact time

undergraduate and graduate teaching and research labs within the Department, not only for biomechanics but also for physiology, biochemistry, cadaver anatomy, and neurophysiology, all part of the new curriculum. Dr. Nelson’s influence on these labs and on young faculty members began with a 1969 visit to Penn

while they work. Currently, there is a lack of research on the gait biomechanics of walking workstation users. Working while walking may alter movement patterns, as previous studies have demonstrated that the performance of a secondary task during walking alters gait 12 – 14 especially in older
