  • Overview

    Introduction
    The aim of this subject is to examine the musculoskeletal system of the appendicular skeleton as it relates to function and control of the locomotor system. Topics covered include the osteology, blood supply, peripheral nervous innervation and muscular components of the musculoskeletal system and related tissues in healthy humans.

     
    Learning Objectives
    1. Describe the structure and function of the musculo-skeletal system in relation to human movement
    2. Apply knowledge of musculo-skeletal anatomy as it relates to physical activity across the lifespan
    3. Apply techniques necessary for kinesiological analysis of body mechanics in relation to static and dynamic posture and gait
    4. Evaluate human motion by examining structural differences and their relationship to human performance across a range of activities
    5. Describe human movement using appropriate terminology and concepts
    6. Demonstrate techniques necessary for kinesiological analysis of musculo-skeletal mechanics across a range of static and dynamic activities.
