OTDE 705 Functional Anatomy and Kinesiology to Support Occupational Performance

OTDE 705.  Functional Anatomy and Kinesiology to Support Occupational Performance.  3 Credits.     

This course will focus on understanding of the physical components of human movement which serve as one foundation for occupational performance. The instructor will facilitate a section-based review of anatomy (e.g., shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee) integrated with the biomechanical and kinesiology principles that occur in typical and atypical movement within each section. The emphasis in this course will be on how to use biomechanical and kinesiology principles to guide the development of occupation-based interventions in people with various abilities across the lifespan through promotion, compensation, adaptation and prevention. Prerequisite: Acceptance to the entry-level doctoral program in Occupational Therapy.
