This course will present the basic principles of biomechanics and kinesiology related to human movement and occupational performance. Topics include the interrelationship among the central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, and musculoskeletal system; anatomical landmarks; joints; posture and balance, locomotion. The assessment of range of motion and functional strength will be examined. The primary tool of Occupational therapy intervention, Activity Analysis, will be integrated into all aspects of the teaching of human movement.
