Students master vector calculations, different joint positions and stresses on the basis of examples can mathematically represent and interpret accordingly. They know the convex-concave of the control joints. The students learn that content by way of examples, which they apply and implement practical.

Force - Forces doctrine, Newton's Laws, torque, vector - vector calculation, gravity, inclined plane, pressure, torque, friction, pulleys, lever type balance: physical principles, moment of inertia, joint stability, balance and stability muscles: muscle types and their properties from a biomechanical point of view. Use of muscle strength in relation to muscle length, types of muscular work and speed of muscular work bone: mechanical properties of bone tissue types: mechanical properties of various tissues (cartilage, intervertebral discs, ligaments, tendons, etc.) stimulus-response scheme of the cartilage and the intervertebral disc under load introduction in the biomechanical functioning of the WirbelsäuleKonvex-concave rule of joints practical work examples
