This course will introduce the student to common engineering terms and concepts that have application to assistive technology and rehabilitation engineering. Many non-engineering clinicians are often confronted with engineering terms but do not understand their specific meanings or how these concepts are applied to clinical settings. Definitions of the terms will be presented as well as examples of how the concepts relate to assistive technology. Students will be given ample opportunity to ask questions and discuss their experiences with engineering concepts and terminology.
- Participants will be able to identify and describe the basic forces
- Participants will be able to identify and describe basic material properties
- Participants will be able to identify and describe basic time-dependent material properties
