For Occupational Therapy Assistant majors, this course presents the basic principles of biomechanics and kinesiology related to human movement and occupational performance. Emphasis is on the interrelationship between elements of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems during body movement and functional activity in both children and adults. Coordination of body movement, posture and balance, and pathology related to movement and their application to occupational therapy will be examined. Activity analysis of functional movements required for work, self-care, school, play and leisure activities will be used for developing foundational skills in assessment and intervention planning. Lab component of the course provides hands on experiences with the study and analysis of body structures and movements. Lab experience allows students to practice assessment of movement, strength and treatment in the biomechanical frame of reference.
