This course covers the biomechanics of the human anatomy. This course covers muscular-skeletal movements as it applies in orthotics and prosthetics and the practitioner's considerations when applied to the proper selection of devices.
Upon completion of this module, the participant will understand:
- Muscular-skeletal system
- Kinetics and kinematics
- Center of gravity
- Base of support
- Levers and forces
- Newton's laws of motion
- The law of equilibrium
- Support systems
