Biomechanics - Torque preparation


These materials are still in classroom testing and development to prepare students to visualize the forces acting on limbs and other torque parameters like lever arms and torque directions forces exert. These materials include classroom work, practice scenarios and templates for use with their own pictures. Traditionally, torque problems provided to students come with all the forces and distances displayed. Students appear to have trouble visualizing these for themselves in real life human limb situations. These material were developed to address this difficulty. These materials are NOT currently in order of use.
