Kinesiology, also known as human kinetics, is the scientific study of human movement, performance, and function.
Kinesiology applies the sciences of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology, and neuroscience. It addresses physiological, mechanical, and psychological mechanisms.
Applications of kinesiology include biomechanics, orthopaedics, the rehabilitation professions, such as physical and occupational therapy, as well as sport and exercise.
Study of kinesiology includes, but is not limited to, such areas exercise science, sports management, athletic training and sports medicine, socio-cultural analyses of sports, sport and exercise psychology, fitness leadership, physical education, teacher education, physical therapy, occupational therapy, medicine and other health related fields.
Studies of human motion include measures from motion tracking systems, electrophysiology of muscle and brain activity, various methods for monitoring physiological function, and other behavioural and cognitive research techniques.
