• To develop an understanding of Occupational Therapy theoretical perspectives, describe the basic features of theories underlying occupational therapy practice.
• Describe the definition of Kinesiology and its significance for Occupational Therapy.
• The student will apply the knowledge gained to provide a sound basis for understanding movement analysis in a selected activity that includes:
1- Identification of joints
2- Movements performed
3-Primary muscles in action
5- Planes and axes around the joints (Frontal, Sagittal, and Transverse)
• Understanding movement analysis will assist the student in understanding how created theories and models of practice in Occupational Theory (many with theoretical bases and assumptions drawn from anatomy, physiology and kinesiology) facilitate the individual when addressing functional implications in performance patterns, performance skills, remediation of loss in functional performance and/or when engaged in occupational performance, etc.)
• The student will be assigned a picture or a drawing of a person performing a functional, work-related, sport, recreational or leisure activity.
• The student will perform a comprehensive analysis of human body movement that includes the description of joints involved, movement performed, primary muscles in action, innervations, planes and axes around the joint.
