BIOMECHANICAL ARM KIT
The Biomechanical Arm kit provides an ideal hands-on approach for understanding how bones, joints and muscles work together to produce support and movement. The use of the kit enables students to quickly relate what they see to how their own bodies work.
The Biomechanical Arm kit is a complete lab-tested system for teaching and learning about the musculoskeletal system. The principles of biomechanics provide students with a real world framework for organising 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 orthopaedic nurses. Working ideally in teams of four, students practice observation, measurement, data gathering and analysis, prediction, plus calculations and problem solving.
Set-up and care requires minimal teacher time and 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.
Included in the kit:
* Biomechanical Arm Model
* Support Base and Rod
* Support Clamps
* Force Cord Assembly (Cable, handle, connectors, fine adjustment, force gauge)
* Brass Weights (1 x 50g, 1 x 100g)
* Instructor's Curriculum Guide (containing illustrated instructions for set-up and care of models, teaching/learning guide and test bank)
* Four Student Laboratory Guides.
