OT-720: Movement in Occupations

4 credit hours

Analyzes the structure and function of the human body using applied functional movement principles related to occupational therapy intervention. This includes using biomechanics, kinematics, and kinetics of human movement through didactic and lab experiences. Students will demonstrate the use of standardized and non-standardized musculoskeletal assessment tools along with skilled observation to document the need for occupational therapy intervention. Evaluation procedures including manual muscle testing, range of motion, and other related skills are presented. Students will demonstrate task analysis competence and safety of self and others in teaching-learning training for enhancing functional mobility.
