Biomechanics involves the application of mechanical principles in the study of living organisms. 

It strives to explain the mechanics of life and living.

From molecules to skeletal joints and from one movement to the other in human motions, everything must follow the law of mechanics.

In this regard, biomechanics is very important for understanding of not only the nature of human locomotion but also the underlying physiological mechanisms and principles. 

In modern days, we are witnessing the wide ranges of application in biomechanics such as development of artificial organs, artificial joints, and fixation devices. 

All of these have been resulted from continued effort made in the field of biomechanics and they have contributed for the development of safer and more effective diagnostic tools and treatment modalities that in turn can prolong and enhance the quality of life. 

For example, development of the total hip joint have been able to help the patients to walk without pain and even participate in sports which was not possible 20 years ago. 

Also, persons with severe spinal deformities such as kyphoscoliosis can be surgically corrected with spinal instrumentation devices and retain a normal spinal curvature for the rest of their lives.

Therefore, it is clear that the field of biomechanics will see more growth and wider applications as the demand for the better quality of life increases in the future.
