PH 157 - Interdisciplinary Approach to Structural Kinesiology

Credit Hours: 1

An introductory interdisciplinary course in structural kinesiology with laboratory applications in physics. This course is specifically intended for students in occupational therapy and may be taken by liberal arts science students interested in a kinesiology overview. Relationships between structure, function and the fundamental laws of physics will be emphasized. Topics include anatomical terminology, joint movement, measurements, linear motion, vectors, force, analysis of the bones, muscles and nerve innervations of the upper and lower extremities, rotational motion and basic biomechanics.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • demonstrate the basic laws of nature;
  • perform experiments to verify the laws of nature;
  • apply mathematical skills and techniques to solve problems in nature; and
  • read laboratory manuals and  write precise technical laboratory reports.
