Sports Biomechanics

Sports biomechanics is a quantitative based study and analysis of professional athletes and sports activities in general. It can simply be described as the Physics of Sports. In this subfield of biomechanics the laws of mechanics are applied in order to gain a greater understanding of athletic performance through mathematical modeling, computer simulation and measurement. In the term “mechanics” there are two sub-fields of study: statics, which is the study of systems that are in a state of constant motion either at rest or moving with a constant velocity; and dynamics, which is the study of systems in motion in which acceleration is present. Dynamics may involve kinematics which is the study of motion of bodies with respect to time, displacement, velocity, and speed of movement either in a straight line or in a rotary direction
