IE 492/592: Industrial Ergonomics 3 Connective Tissue -- connections and infra-structure Tendons -- transmits force from muscle to bone. Ligaments -- connects bone to bone and stabilize joint structures Fascia -- general connective tissue Skin Bone -- framework and supra-structure Long Bones -- extremities, e.g. femur, tibia, fibula. Short Bones -- wrist and ankle, e.g. carpals,tarsals. Flat Bones -- cranium and ribs. Irregular Bones-- spinal column, pectoral girdle. The Musculoskeletal System

IE 492/592: Industrial Ergonomics 6 Connective tissues are composed of cells and an extra-cellular matrix – Cells produce matrix Matrix = fibers and ground substance. Determines physical properties of different connective tissues Extracellular Matrix – Collagen Fibers- high tensile, resistant to deformation – Elastic Fibers- elastic, low tensile strength – Both present in varying proportions Ground Substance – Glycoproteins, Lipids – Calcium Water Cellular Structure
