This module serves as the practical platform for students to acquire exposure to an experience in health promotion, the maintenance of physical abilities and final phase rehabilitation. This will be achieved by means of the practical application of scientifically based assessement and physical activity programme prescription for healthy and special populations. This module requires the student to meet the expected requirements stipulated by the Health Professions Council of South Africa and have accumulated 65 hours of Sport First aid.
The module examines exercise physiology from a biokinetics perspective and includes the normal and pathophysiology of bio-energetics, adaptation of the body systems, environmental influences, ergogenic aids and special considerations such as aging, gender, genetics and fatigue.
(1 hour contact time per week with work assignments for the following week).
This module serves as the theoretical platform for students to acquire the knowledge and understanding of the role of the biokineticist in health promotion, the maintenance of physical abilities and final phase rehabilitation. This will be achieved by means of acquring the knowledge and understanding of scientifically based assessement and physical activity programme prescription in healthy and special populations.
In this module the focus will be on the execution of a research proposal and writing a research manuscript on the study executed, and the presentation of the research project which includes an introduction, literature survey, methodology, results and discussion, and conclusion and recommendations.
