Course objective (s):

UNIT ONE: Anatomical Position and Major Planes of the Body

Upon successful completion of this unit by written examination, the student will identify the anatomical position and major planes of the body.

  1. Identify descriptive terms including midline, proximal, distal, medial, lateral, ipsilateral and contralateral.
  2. Identify sagittal, coronal, transverse planes.
  3. Describe the three normal curves of the spine.
  4. Define and give examples of the planes and axes used to describe movements of the human body.
  5. Discuss the definition of kinesiology and the significance for Occupational Therapy.
  6. Identify and describe anatomical terms.

UNIT TWO: Structure and Basic Functional Implications of the muscular System

Upon successful completion of this unit by written examination the student will identify muscles and muscle functions.

  1. Describe the structures of an individual muscle.
  2. Describe the molecular events that result in muscle contraction and relaxation.
  3. Define terms related to the muscular system including origin and insertion.
  4. Explain how muscles work in controlled opposition to produce coordinated movements.
  5. Identify selected muscles.ORDER A PLAGIARISM-FREE PAPER NOW

UNIT THREE: Joint design, categories and functions

Upon successful completion of this unit by written examination the student will be able to discuss the structure and basic functional implications of the skeletal s6ystem.

  1. Describe the three major joint classifications and discuss the support that each provides for the human body.
  2. Discuss the planes and axes in relation to the movements that occur in the human body.
  3. Identify the types of joints and their structural components.
  4. Identify the forces of motion that act upon joints.

UNIT FIVE: Static and Dynamic Movement

Upon successful completion of this unit on written examination, the student will identify the difference between static and dynamic movement

  1. Define muscle irritability, contractility, extensibility and elasticity.
  2. Differentiate between concentric and eccentric muscle contractions.
  3. Explain the roles of muscle as an agonist, antagonist, stabilizer or neutralizer.

Objective: 

  • To develop an understanding of Occupational Therapy theoretical perspectives, describe the basic features of theories underlying occupational therapy practice.
  • Describe the definition of Kinesiology and its significance for Occupational Therapy.
  • The student will apply the knowledge gained to provide a sound basis for understanding movement analysis in a selected activity that includes identification of joints, movements performed, primary muscles in action, innervations, planes and axes around the joints.
  • Understanding movement analysis will assist the student in understanding how created theories and models of practice in Occupational Theory (many with theoretical bases and assumptions drawn from anatomy, physiology and kinesiology) facilitate the individual when addressing functional implications in performance patterns, performance skills, remediation of loss in functional performance and/or when engaged in occupational performance, etc.)

Procedure: 

  • The student will be assigned a picture or a drawing of a person performing a functional, work-related, sport, recreational or leisure activity.
  • The student will perform a comprehensive analysis of human body movement that includes the description of joints involved, movement performed, primary muscles in action, innervations, planes and axes around the joint.
