Role of biomechanics in physical education and sports
Author(s): Shambu Dutt
Abstract: Physical educators teach a wide variety of human movements, and biomechanics provides a rationale critical for evaluating technique and prescribing intervention to help young people improve. Biomechanics also allows physical educators to identify exercises and physical activities that contribute to the physical development of various muscle groups and fitness components. In sports and exercise, biomechanics refers to the study of human movements, including the interaction between the athlete, sport equipment and the exercise environment Physical Education with Biomechanics and its implementation. People especially the students, players need help in improving their physical endurance but they often have problems like how the human body moves, what type of techniques can be used to develop motor skills Etc. Physical Education teaches various examples of Physical Exercise whereas Biomechanics is the study of the structure and function of biological systems by means of the methods of mechanics, the branch of physics involving analysis of the actions of forces Biomechanics provides proper and important techniques to make physical development of several muscle group and fitness components and skills. Biomechanics is the application of mechanics in the human movements. In Order to improve student’s physical movement safely and effectively biomechanical techniques are necessary.
