Kinesiology

Kinesiology is the scientific study of human and non-human body movements. Kinesiology deals with the physiological, biomechanical, and psychological mechanisms of movement. Applications of kinesiology to human health i.e., human kinesiology include biomechanics and orthopaedics; strength and conditioning; sport psychology; methods of rehabilitation, such as physical and occupational therapy; sports and exercise. Studies of human and animal motion include measures from motion tracking systems, electrophysiology of muscle and brain activity, various methods for monitoring physiological function, and other behavioural and cognitive research techniques. Kinesiologists work in industry to assess the suitability of workstation designs and provide suggestions for modifications and assistive devices.
