PET 119 - Intro to Biomechanics


3 credits
This course deals with the study of muscles as they are involved in the science of human movement. Since muscles attach to bones through tendons, both skeletal and muscular structures are involved. At the completion of this course the student should be able to (1) identify on a human skeleton and/or a living subject the most important bones and bony features for the major joints of the body, (2) label the important bones and bony features on a skeletal chart, (3) draw and label major muscles on a skeletal chart, (4) identify and palpate these muscles on a human subject, (5) list and organize the muscles that produce the primary movements for all the major joints of the body, and (6) analyze basic movements in terms of muscle actions. Information will also be presented on how to strengthen and stretch most of these muscles.
