M.PHIL IN PHYSICAL THERAPY (BIOMECHANICS)

University of Lahore

This degree course is structured for the DPT graduates who have vision of excelling in assessment of movement and its patterns of different living organisms. The students will study the application of forces and their effects on living organisms specifically in humans. It is important for comprehending the structural and functional aspects of biological systems that are humans, animals, plants etc. by means of methods of mechanics.

Why this

Degree

Biomechanics is closely related to engineering because it often uses traditional engineering sciences to analyze biological systems. Subfields of biomechanics may include
• Kinesiology
• Human locomotion & gait analysis
• Musculoskeletal & orthopedic biomechanics
• Cardiovascular biomechanics
• Ergonomics
• Sports biomechanics
• Rehabilitation
• Orthotics & prosthetics
