Graduate Catalog

SES-562 LAB TECH IN SES

This course has 2 modules: Module A: A course for graduate movement science students in the study of instrumentation utilized in the collection of motion data in the area of Biomechanics. Emphasis is placed on the technical and analytical aspects of motion analysis, force measurement, and electromyography. Module B: This course provides in-depth experience in tests and measurements used in an exercise physiology laboratory for purposes of clinical, health and fitness, and sport performance research. Measurements include but not limited to oxygen uptake, anaerobic capacity, blood lactate, ECG, spirometry, flexibility, air plethysmography, and hydrostatic weighing. Laboratory techniques are applied to exercise tests with the purpose of evaluating the physiological responses to exercise. This course is designed to provide students exposure to the scientific process and hypothesis development as it applies to exercise physiology. Finally, students will learn to write about the data that they collect using the scientific method. SES 320 Kinesiology or equivalent. Prerequisites: SES 361 or equivalent, and SES 561 or taken concurrently.
