Product Description

Introduction: In order for descriptions of body segments to be meaningful, movement specialists must be able to communicate with one another using a standard set of nomenclature. In this unique lab activity, students will review planes and axes of motion used to describe the orientation of body segments and apply what they have learned to accurately describe joint actions. Using common biomechanics nomenclature students will be introduced to methods used to describe everyday movements at a major joints.

In this fun, engaging lab student will: Complete and analyze each of the three movements listed: bicep curl, standing squat, and jumping jack using the terms below:

  • Starting Position Terms: flexed, extended, neutral position, hyperextended, pronated, supinated, abducted, adducted, inverted, everted
  • Joint Action Terms: extension, flexion, abduction, adduction, pronation, supination, inversion, eversion, hyperextension, stabilizer
  • Planes: sagital, frontal, transverse
  • Functional Classifications of Joints: synarthrosis, amphiarthrosis, diarthsosis
  • Structural Classification of Joints: fibrous, cartilaginous, synovial
  • Diarthsosis joint types (shapes): hinge, condyloid, saddle, ball & socket, pivot, plane
  • *further classify diarthrotic joints by shape under functional classification
