Aim of the course is to present methods and tools for approaching the study of sport equipments and rehabilitation devices by means of theoretical lectures, applied workshops and practical experiences during Laboratory sessions.
Using the basic knowledge of applied mechanics, machine design and measurement courses, students should enhance their essential knowledge of anatomy and physiology of the musculoskeletal system and adopt an integrated approach to the study of functionality, comfort and safety properties of sport equipments or rehabilitation devices, after considering the introduction of comparative tests or the development of innovative solutions.
The course proposes the development of an OPTIONAL group project oriented to the study of a sport equipment, an assistive product or a biomedical device/sensor/software, assuming either an experimental, a numerical or a product innovation approach.


Students from Mechanical Engineering, Bioengineering and ICT will be Auto Enrolled if the enter the course.
