Biomechanics: a well-established scientific discipline
Biotonix has drawn on years of research supporting biomechanics: the study of the mechanical characteristics of biological systems including the human body. Biomechanics draws heavily from physics and applies principals originally used to describe the behavior of inanimate objects to an understanding of body form and function.
Biomechanics has a long and colorful history that can be traced back at least to Aristotle and his modeling of the impact of muscular action on the skeletal system. It has matured into a well-established scientific discipline used within a wide range of academic domains including kinesiology, ergonomics, neuroscience and motor control.
