Abstract:

Applying technical devices of varying degree of complexity and sophistication with the purpose of diagnostics and treatment has been a hallmark of modern western medicine. Todays medical praxis, for instance, relays heavily on CT, MRI, ultrasound, and other complex devices. One example, ever more present during the last decade, is the instrumentation for biomechanical kinematic, kinetic and EMG motion measurements and analysis. The paper describes some contributions in this realm at the University of Zagreb including the publishing of a comprehensive textbook on the subject and also the introducement of teaching curricula to implement the appropriate knowledge. Problems are discussed of educating professionals and disseminating knowledge of this kind to the interdisciplinary audience including biomedical engineers, medical doctors, kinesiologists, physical therapists, etc.
