OTED-51300 Applied Biomechanics for Occupational Performance

This course examines the person-occupation interaction through the use of the biomechanical frame of reference and the rehabilitation model. This course emphasizes person-specific abilities related to strength, range of motion, sensation, and coordination. In addition, soft-tissue and wound management, positioning methods, orthotics, and physical agent modalities will be presented as means to further support occupational performance, participation, and well-being. Students in this class develop skills in evaluation and documentation, as well as activity analysis. This course includes a lab component.
