Kinesiology is the scientific study of human body movement. Kinesiology addresses physiological, biomechanical and psychological mechanisms. Applications of kinesiology to human health (i.e. human Kinesiology) include biomechanics and orthopedics; strength and conditioning; sport psychology; methods of rehabilitation, such as physical and occupational therapy; and sport and exercise. Studies of human and motion include measures from motion tracking systems, electrophysiology of muscle and brain activity, various methods for monitoring physiological function and other behavioral and cognitive research techniques.
