This preview shows 1 out of 2 pages.

Kinematic Analysis of Human Movement Requires knowledge of the specific biomechanical purpose of the movement and the ability to detect the causes of errors through movement patterns Can be qualitative or quantitative Does not include the ultimate cause of movement (Force) Performing a Kinematic Analysis Want to identify the question or problem o How you make your decisions on how to analyze something depends on the problem you are trying to answer We are going to concentrate on viewing angle and distance Performing a Kinematic Analysis They link into the framework that we are talking about Viewing Angle What side you are seeing it from First Image o Name of View: frontal view Good for adduction and abduction o Plane observed: frontal plane o Major Joint Angles Observed: elbow, knew From frontal plane tough to see the flexion and extension It is good for abduction and adduction angle Able to see how far out the shoulder is Able to measure the two Second image o Name of View: sagittal view o Plane observed: sagittal plane Good for flexion and extension o Major Joint Angles Observed: know see elbow but can also measure the angle Can’t do adduction or abduction Can measure plantar and dorsi flexion as well Viewing Distance Trade-offs: o Resolution o Size of Field of View If you wanted to identify exactly where the ankle joint of the person is you wouldn’t be as accurate o You have much more accurate location of ankle in the first part compared to the last picture

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
