FAB 201 - Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics of the Extremities

This course addresses structure, function, biomechanics and clinical concepts of human appendicular system. Emphasis is on the interrelationships between structure and function as well as biomechanical principles associated with the appendicular musculoskeletal system. Joint mechanics, muscle kinetics, and biomechanics, as well as evaluation of gait are discussed. Instruction includes lecture, human dissection laboratory, small group discussion sessions, and independent working projects. Laboratory activities will include dissection of human cadavers, the study of pre-dissected materials, models, and problem-based small group discussions. Correlation to clinical assessment and therapeutic procedures will be introduced.
