Biomechanics kits offer a complete lab-tested system for teaching and learning the musculoskeletal system, requiring a minimum investment of instructor time to implement. The principles of biomechanics provide students with a real world framework for organizing details of musculoskeletal anatomy.
By mastering a limited set of basic concepts, students can predict and explain body movement using the same approaches employed by kinesiologists, exercise physiologists, physical therapists, and orthopedic nurses.
Working ideally in teams of four, students practice observation, measurement, data gathering and analysis, prediction, plus calculations and problem solving.
Setup and care is explained in a short, illustrated manual. A teaching and learning guide helps with lesson planning and implementation.
A laboratory guide takes students through the learning activities in a step-by step manner, then keeps them studying out of class with problem sets.
A test bank provides assessment items in various formats that you may use directly or adapt for your special needs and objectives. Using these features in combination with the models themselves, you will always have reliable, repeatable, hands-on-results.
