OTHA 1309 - Human Structure and Function in Occupational Therapy


3 Credits (2 hrs. lec., 2 hrs. lab.) Study of the biomechanics of human motion. Emphasis on the musculoskeletal system including skeletal structure, muscles and nerves, and biomechanical assessment procedures. Prerequisite: College Level Readiness in Reading AND Writing; Departmental approval
Course Outcomes
1 - Identify human skeletal structure by bones, boney landmarks, and muscles.
2 - Analyze human motion by muscle function, innervation, and kinetics related to functional outcomes.
3 - Identify normal and abnormal movement.
4 - Evaluate joint range of motion and muscle strength.
5 - Demonstrate an understanding of normal and abnormal movement patterns.
6 - Demonstrate effective documentation of assessment findings.
7 - Demonstrate skills learned on measurement of joint range of motion and muscle strength.
8 - Identify optimal and alternate positions for muscle testing.
9 - Identify pertinent landmarks for purposes of musculoskeletal assessment.
10 - Identify the joint ranges and muscle strength necessary for functional performance of daily activities.
11 - Understand the basic principles of musculoskeletal assessment, articular function, and movement.
