Title: Anatomical Terminology to Analyze Movement
Authors: Tamara Bories and Miguel Narvaez
Affiliations: Western Illinois University
Resources available with this module: Readings, application exercise, RAT
Context: KIN 392 – Bio Mechanics
The lesson provides the students a video recorded mini-lecture, practice questions, additional website links and resources for further exploration of content that may be difficult to understand with first exposure.
The pre-reading consists of a portion of the textbook used for the course: Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise, (3rd edition, 2013), published by Human Kinetics Press (Champaign, IL). The assigned reading comes from the chapter entitled Angular Kinematics (pp. 178-189). The students are provided the learning objectives as a study guide to the TEDEd Lesson and pre-reading material.
By the end of the module, students will be able to:
- identify the positions of the joints when standing in anatomical position
- identify how directional terminology is used
- classify planes and the associated axes of motion
- utilize movement terminology for each of the major joints when describing movements
- apply anatomical terminology when analyzing movements
- analyze movement complexity; sequencing of and simultaneous movements
- evaluate movement complexity; sequencing of and simultaneous movements
