OVERVIEW

The course presents the basic principles on which the human movement observation is studied in its various areas: physical-motor, intellect-cognitive, social-relational.

AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Acquire knowledge of chinesiology of trunk, upper and lower extremities - Acquire the main notions regarding postures, postural passages, walking

Teaching methods

Frontal lessons

Simulations, theoretical-practical exercises:

Students will also have the opportunity to attend workshops and didactic spaces to implement the analysis of the movement, the main points of the anatomical tests and become themselves the operators and subjects involved.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Anatomy details with notions of topographic anatomy, anatomy on the living, main points of repere

Kinesiological terminology. Description of movement: planes, axes and types of motion. Types of joints and degrees of freedom. Accessory motion concept. Types of muscles and their inserts.

Muscle concept: agonist, antagonist, synergistic (types of synergies). Types of contraction: isometric, isotonic and isocinetic motion.

Special kinesiology:

Upper limb kinesiology. Lower limb kinesiology. Kinesiology of the spine. Breathing kinship. Concept of posture and station. Standing and variations. Sitting position, Supine-Sitting Passage, Seat to Stand, Walking. Ascending and descending stairs. Pickups. The Biological Purpose of Movement Movement as a behavioral act, such as exploration, as a take information and learning, as a relation between two postures, as non-verbal language
