Applied anatomy of the locomotor system

University of Naples Federico II via edX


The skeletal, articular and muscular systems provide support and strength to the body and give humansour ability to move.The Motion and Strengthcourseoffers an exploration of the normal structure and function of the bones, joints,and muscles of the human body.It further illustrates their importance by making reference to diseases and disorders that may adversely affect the structure and function - hence the overall effectiveness - of the locomotor system.

The course is designed to serve as a transition between descriptive anatomy knowledge and clinical anatomy skills. The courseworkconsists of two parts: itbegins with the detailed description of bones, joints,and muscles at the cellular and tissue levels of organization; followed by a regional discussion of the human skeletal, articular, and muscular systems in different body parts. Each lesson features integrated basic, functional, and radiological anatomy materials, accompanied by links to verified learning resources that contain examples of the anatomical knowledge used in the medical setting.

The course structure is intended to ease the memory strain typically associated with Anatomy studies, as it is much easier to remember relevant facts if they have an immediate particular meaning attached to them. The coursework is ideal for medicine, physical therapy, or physical education and sports science undergraduate students. In addition, orthopedics, sports medicine, or rehabilitation postgraduate interns,may find the content informative and interesting and use it either to deepen or refresh their knowledge. All learners should note that the content is not intended to be a source of or substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, and it does not endorse or recommend any specific tests, procedures, or opinions.

    The content at large just excellent ! The uplay as well just excellent
    Two problem : A fix position camera was used ! The camera should indeed
    be following the ”the happening the explanation” The skeleton should have
    been used more instead of ”empty body talk”
    But,,but as such the course was just exellent !!

    The course is both a refresher and educational at the same time. Back in my college days, I took up my Anatomy and Physiology subjects and Biomechanic Courses. Now as a Physical Educator and Sports Coach. When I read the lessons now they give much appreciation as I apply them in my profession.

    She might be a good teacher, but she should stop reading, or if she does so, she should learn how to do it better, besides she reads and does not have the skeleton to show it better. At time, the volume is too low. The content is what it is supposed to.
