  18. What are the 2 components of Quantity of Motion?
    • Angular Motion: clinically measured in degrees, with 360o being a full circle
    • Magnitude of Motion: expressed in degrees per unit of time (angular speed)
  19. What are the 3 parts of Angular Motion?
    • Open-Packed Position: ligaments and capsule are inactive & joint surfaces apart, unstable position for joint movement, muscles surrounding the joint are active with active force & with passive force joint mobilization (accessory joint movement) may be performed
    • Closed-Packed Position: ligaments & capsule are taut & joint surfaces are most congruent, stable position with minimal muscle contraction actively & passive accessory joint movement cannot be performed passively.
    • O-Position: the starting position for measuring joint motion. It is deemed as 0o on a goniometer
  20. How is the Magnitude of Motion used clinically & why is it ineffective?
    • Used with isokinetic (same speed) equipment at 60, 120, 180, or 300 degrees per second.
    • This is ineffective because real world joint movement occurs as speeds much quicker than this.
    • Kicking a ball (knee velocity): 2400o/s
    • Throwing a ball (elbow velocity): 1225o/s
    • Jumping to spike a vollyball (knee velocity): 974o/s
    • Throwing a baseball (shoulder IR velocity): 0-->1800o in 26ms
  21. Isometric vs Isotonic vs Isokinetic

    • Isokinetic: same speed (velocity)
  22. External Force
    -what is it & what is the main example?
    • Forces acting on the body which arise from outside sources (GRAVITY)
    • Wind, water, other peole and other objects all produce external forces taht the human movement system will enounter
  23. Internal Forces
    • Forces acting on the body from inside sources
    • Muscles, ligaments, bone
    • Friction, atomoshpheric pressure (w/in a joint)
  24. Force Vectors are comprised of which 3 things?

    • Asymmetrical Objects: Toward the heavier end
    • Human Body: Anterior to S2
  27. Line of Gravity (LOG)
    Line that is always oriented vertically downward toward the center of the earth, regardless of orientation of object/body in space.
  28. Reaction of Forces (Law of Reaction)
    • For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
    • Forces come in pairs.
    • Gravity exerts a force on all objects, objects will exert a force back.
  29. Equilibrium (Law of Inertia)
    An object will remain at rest or in uniform motion unless acted on by an unblanced force.
  30. Objects in Motion (Law of Acceleration)
    -what is it & what is the formula?
    • a=F/M
    • Acceleration is proportional to the unblanced forces acting on it & inversely proportional to the mass. That is, the lighter an object, the greater the acceleration. The greater the force applied to an object, the greater the acceleration.
  31. You must ______________ load to ___________ unload.
  32. Which 3 things contribute to a stable system due to the position of the COG & LOG?
    • A LOG that falls w/in the BOS
    • A large BOS
    • A COG that is close to the BOS
    • The more unstable the system, the harder muscles and the proprioceptive system have to work to maintain stability

  34. What is happening if the knee buckles during walking?
    There is a neurological shut off of the Quadricep
  35. EMG
    Electrolmyograph: test which uses a needle inserted into a muscle to digitally measure excitement of the muscle (contraction)
  36. Concurrent Force Systems
    Two or more forces acting at a common point but in divergent directions
  37. Composition of Forces
    The net effect of two divergent pulls is the line that lies between them
  38. What are the 3 muscle action lines?
    • Total Muscle Force Vector: Whenever a contraction occurs, a muscle will pull on all segments to which it is attached. Muscles create movement based on net forces aplied to a segment, not based on which is the distal end (insteriton).
    • Divergent Muscle Pulls: The polygon method may be used to determine the resultant pull of two or more segments of one muscle (i.e. deltoid, pec major) or two muscles that share a common point of attachment
    • Anatomic Pulleys: present throughout the body to change the direction of pull & increase the moment arm of force
  39. What are the 2 rules that apply to anatomical PULLEYs?
    • The point of application is located on the segment being moved, at the point of attachment of the muscle on the segment
    • The direction of pull that the fibers or tendons create at the point of application is known as the ACTION LINE. Vectors are straight lines and do not change directions, regardless of any change in direction of muscle fiber or tendon.
  40. What are the 3 types of parallel force systems?
    • First Class Levers (FAR): A system of EQUILIBRIUM, few w/in the body, vital in lifting (triceps @ olecranon)
    • Second Class Levers (ARF): A system of power (gastroc/soleus w/ axis at MTP joint)
    • Third Class Levers (AFR): A system of efficiency of movement (biceps brachii @ elbow)
    • Torque: the ability of any force to cause rotation of the lever T= f x d (d=perpendicular distance)
