What is kinematics?

- Spatial and temporal characteristics
- Qualitative or quantitative
- Linear & angular motion

Why use kinematics?

- Practical: Provides a standard for us in performing, teaching, or evaluating a skill
- Research: Once we describe, we can ask why?

Problem with kinematics?

- Practical: Proper kinematics does not always mean proper force application

- Reference Systems for Describing Motion of the Human Body & Its Segments
- Guidelines for Describing Motion of the Human Body & Its Segments

Kinematic Variables

- Time
- Position
- Displacement & distance
- Velocity & speed
- Acceleration

HOW OFTEN?

IN WHAT ORDER?

HOW LONG?

Most basic analysis

Examples:

Cadence

Stride time

Temporal patterning

Time – Temporal AnalysisPosition

- position - location in space relative to some reference point
- Linear position (s)
- x,y,z coordinates

- Angular position ()
- Units

WHERE?

Displacement (s, )

Final change in position

Vector quantity

Distance (p, )

Sum of all changes in position

Scalar quantity

Displacement & DistanceHOW FAR?

- Units (m, °)

Velocity (v, )

Vector quantity

position time

Units (m.s-1, °.s-1)

Acceleration (a, )

Vector quantity

velocity time

Units (m.s-2, °.s-2)

Insight into forces/torques

Velocity & AccelerationHOW QUICKLY IS VELOCITY CHANGING?

HOW FAST?

4. Understand that movement generally occurs in oblique planes around oblique axes.

5. When observing motion, look planes around oblique axes.at the plane, down the axis.

Summary planes around oblique axes.

- Identify the system of interest
- Identify the type(s) of motion of interest
- Identify the reference system for the motion
- Describe precisely the temporal & spatial characteristics of that motion using appropriate terminology for the situation
- Time
- Position
- Displacement (ROM)
- Velocity
- Acceleration

For the next lecture day: planes around oblique axes.

- Lecture Topic #2
- Subtopic C – Vector Algebra
