This course covers the gait cycle, kinematics, kinetics, and dynamics of lower limbs, and muscular control on lower limbs and lower back during the gait cycle. The general functions and tasks of the lower limb during walking will also be covered.
2008 - 2009, 2009 - 2010, 2010 - 2011, 2011 - 2012
  
This course covers trans-tibial (below the knee) prostheses types, components (especially prosthetic foot-ankle mechanism), fabrication, and the biomechanical principles related to them. This course also generally covers lower limb amputation levels, causes, and problems.
2008 - 2009
  
This course covers trans-femoral (above the knee) prostheses, types, components, (especially prosthetic knees), fabrication. and biomechanical principles related to them.
2008 - 2009, 2009 - 2010
  
This course covers partial foot amputations, Syme's (ankle) disarticulation, knee disarticaulation, hip disarticulation, their prostheses and the special components and the biomechanical principles related to them.
2010 - 2011
  
This course covers diseases and injuries which affect the normal function of upper limbs. Theories will be applied in practice to derive the appropriate solutions for those conditions specially using orthosis. The focus will be on othorses that are made for cases of neurological, muscular and joints conditions. In addition, the students gain the skills necessary to design and manufacture those orthoses.
2008 - 2009
  
This subject will cover the theory of dynamics with particular application to human body. It also covers the active and passive mechanical behavior of body tissues with specific applications of biomechanics of topics of interest to rehabilitation science specialties. The practicum will concentrate on development of observational skills and objective measurements of human movements
2010 - 2011
  
2008- 2009, 2009 - 2010
  
This course covers diseases, injuries, and deformities of the vertebral column and spinal cord. The student will also learn the methods and techniques employed in the treatment of the different diseases, injuries and deformities of the vertebral column. The focus will be on spinal orthoses which is designed to fix, correct and support the vertebral column. It provides the student with the skills for making those orthosis. Emphasis will be made on the role of the rehabilitation team in the treatment of those conditions.
2008 - 2009, 2009 - 2010, 2010 - 2011, 2011 - 2012
  
This course covers in details diseases, injuries, and deformities of the vertebral column and spinal cord. The focus will be on new spinal orthoses that are designed to fix, correct and support the vertebral column. It provides the students with the skills for making orthoses such as Milwaukee brace, Boston overlap brace, and Charleston brace.
2008 - 2009
  
This course gives the student basic knowledge of deformities, diseases of upper extremity, lower extremity, trunk, and methods of their treatment, specially conservative therapy. The course also emphases on fractures, dislocations, tumors, neuro-muscular diseases, and sport injuries. Amputations and principles of prescription of orthotics and prosthetics will be covered
2010 - 2011, 2011 - 2012, 2012 - 2013
  
The student will learn through this course about the manufacture of assistive orthotic devices for upper and lower extremities including medical shoes, soles Ankle – Foot Orthosis, Hand Orthosis, Wrist – Hand Orthosis, Elbow and Arm orthosis.
