OTPT-113L Applied Anatomy Lab

Credits 0 / 3 Contact Hours
Pre-requisite: Coordinator signature required for registration; Placement into ENGL-100  (ACSR-100), completion of ELAP-120 with a 2.0, or completion of RDNG-030 , ACLT-075  or ACLT-076 ENGL-101  and PSYC-281 . Co-requisite: Student must enroll in one section of OTPT-113  
This is the lab component of OTPT-113  for PTA and OTA students. Biochemical principles of movement are practiced and applied.

Course Outcomes
1. Identify the basic movements of the human body and its joints 2. Locate various structures relative to each other using appropriate terminology 3. Palpate the a) origins, insertion and bellies of selected muscles and the line of pull b) specific peripheral nerves c) specific bony landmarks d) specific ligaments e) joint motion and type of joint 4. Identify muscles and their actions in body movement with regard to prime movers, fixators, accessories, synergists, reverse action, static, concentric or eccentric contractions, antagonists/agonist, neutralizes, active and passive insufficiency and relationship of origin to insertion (line of pull) 5. Demonstrate the arthrokinematics for each synovial joint discussed 6. Analyze activities of daily living using correct terminology 7. Teach a “mock” patient to perform the basic components of correct body mechanics 8. Define and apply to selected problems the terms of center of gravity (mass), line of gravity, base of support, stability/equilibrium, mass, force vector, lever arm and resistance arm, axis, mechanical advantage 8. List examples of the mechanisms for maintenance of stability (equilibrium) of the human body 9. Locate on anatomical models the general location and state the function of selected parts of the brain and spinal cord 10. Describe the function and locate selected structures of peripheral nerve system
