Biomechanics applies the principles of physics and engineering to understanding biological systems. This can mean analysing the physical properties of bone, shell and other materials that make up living things, modelling blood flow, or even analysing the way humans and other animals move. This is particularly useful for sports-people, where gait analysis may help them to move more efficiently, or prevent injury.
