    OVERVIEW

    The teaching of Anatomy of the Locomotor system (1 CFU, 10 hours) is held in the first semester of the first year of the course indicatively starting from the first fortnight of November.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The teaching of Anatomy of the Locomotor system aims to provide the student with adequate knowledge about the organization of the locomotor system, which allow him to understand the normal physiology (kinesiology) and pathologies resulting from abnormalities in its functioning. The objective of the course is therefore the knowledge of the structure of the different parts of the human locomotor system and the understanding of how they are interconnected for the performance of their normal function. The understanding of what is discussed during the course should provide the student with the basis to deepen specific topics of interest within the skeletal, muscular and articular structures of man in complete autonomy.

    TEACHING METHODS

    The teaching activity will consist of 10 hours of lectures, during which, with the use of visual aids, will be illustrated and discussed with the students all the topics that require knowledge at the time of the final examination.

    If the pandemic situation persists, lessons could be held on the Teams online platform.

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    Classification of bones: long, short and flat bones.

    Nomenclature: epiphysis, diaphysis, metaphysis, process/apophysis, tubercle, tuberosity, spine, crest, scale, furrow, hole, ditch.

    Classification of joints.

    Synarthrosis: Sutures, gonphoses, synchondrosis, synphysis, synostosis;

    Skeleton and joints of the spine.

    Skull in general, external configuration of the skull, internal configuration of the skull (vault and base of the skull).

    Cavities common to the neurocranium and splancnocranium:

    Orbital cavities, nasal cavities, infratemporal fossa, pterygosphere fossa.

    Skeleton and joints of the head.

    Skeleton and joints of the spine.

    Skeleton and joints of the upper limb.

    Skeleton and joints of the lower limb.

    Origin, insertion, innervation and action of the following muscle groups:

    muscles of the head: muscles of the cranial vault, muscles of the face, chewing muscles;

    trunk muscles: back muscles, neck muscles, neck fascia

    chest muscles and chest fascia;

    abdominal muscles, fascia and fibrous devices of the abdomen, inguinal route;

    upper limb muscles: shoulder, arm, forearm and hand muscles, upper limb fascia;

    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Oral examination.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    During the exam will be evaluated the communicative skills of the student, through which he will have to demonstrate to know the different structures of the locomotor system treated in class and to have understood the anatomical-functional relationships.

    The student to pass the exam, then report a grade of not less than 18/30.

    For this module, students must demonstrate:
    • Knowing the basics of the anatomy of the locomotor system
    • Describe bones, muscles and joints
    • Recognizing the role of the organs of the locomotor system
    • Apply the knowledge acquired to the anatomical/functional role of the physiotherapist

    According to article L.170/10 'New rules on specific learning disabilities in schools', active support services for students with a specific learning disorder through il Settore Servizi di supporto alla disabilità e agli studenti con DSA are active.
