OT 450 - Biomechanics of Human Occupation

  • 3 credits
  • Online

Students explore the interrelationship between the human muscular and skeletal systems producing movement and engagement in daily activities as activity demands, person factors and contexts change. These systems are thoroughly reviewed and applied through musculoskeletal constructions allowing an in-depth understanding of how the influence of muscle attachments, length and relationship to joint axes can change and influence movements, thus impacting occupational performance.


A minimum of 4 credits of either combined anatomy and physiology or human anatomy at the 200-level or higher is required either as prerequisite or co-requisite. This course is restricted to students admitted to the Occupational Therapy Master's Degree Program.
