This online course has been developed within the Areyoufine project, an initiative funded by the European Union within the Erasmus + Program. The course gives an introduction on the general legal-medical aspects in the assessment of bodily harm at a European level. Introduces the student in the application and utility of biomechanics for the assessment of bodily harm. It explains the use of biomechanical assessment tests as a complementary medical test for the evaluation of the musculoskeletal system that helps to explain the lack of objectivity in medical-legal criteria.
