OT 225 - Functional Kinesiology


Functional Kinesiology provides an in-depth look at the physiological aspects of the person in the context of the environment and the pursuit of occupational performance. This course reviews neuromusculoskeletal and movement-related functions in the context of occupation. Basic principles of biomechanics and kinesiology, muscle function, muscle strength, muscle endurance, functions of bones and joints, innerventions, and movement during occupation will be discussed. Students will examine the types of muscle contractions that occur during activities through muscle activity analysis. Analysis of functional movement required for work, self-care, and play will allow students to demonstrate understanding of these concepts.
