Welcome to the division of biomechanics.
Biomechanics is the research and analysis of the mechanics of living organisms or the application and derivation of engineering principals to and from biological systems. The research and analysis can be carried forth on multiple levels, from the molecular, wherein biomaterials such as collagen and elastin are considered, all the way up to the tissue and organ level. Some simple applications of Newtonian mechanics can supply correct approximations on each level, but precise details demand the use of continuum mechanics.
