Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

Kinanthropometry uses measurements of the human body to determine its capability for function and movement. The theoretical background, practical application and clinical assessment for topics including anthropometrics, posture, balance, range of motion, strength, muscle length and walking and running gait will be investigated.

COURSE DETAILS:

Number of weeks

 

13 weeks

 

Number of hours of lecture/labs/tutorials per week

 

2 hours of lecture, 2 hours of laboratory

 

Schedule or list of topics covered in the course

COURSE-LEVEL EDUCATIONAL GOALS:

  1. Identify the presence of normal and abnormal posture, movement and function
  2. Compare client assessment findings with normative data
  3. Select assessment methods that are both valid and reliable
  4. Analyze the peer reviewed literature regarding relevant assessment techniques
  5. Classify components of health and disease using the International Classification of Function (ICF) model
  6. Conduct a structured orthopaedic physical examination
  7. Differentiate between upper and lower motor neuron syndromes
  8. Conduct functional assessments to determine a client’s level of independence
  9. Identify and evaluate the presents of both internal and external risk factors associated with sport-related injury
  10. Interpret assessment results from various subjective and objective outcome measures

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html

TEACHING AT SFU IN SPRING 2021

Teaching at SFU in spring 2021 will be conducted primarily through remote methods. There will be in-person course components in a few exceptional cases where this is fundamental to the educational goals of the course. Such course components will be clearly identified at registration, as will course components that will be “live” (synchronous) vs. at your own pace (asynchronous). Enrollment acknowledges that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes. To ensure you can access all course materials, we recommend you have access to a computer with a microphone and camera, and the internet. In some cases your instructor may use Zoom or other means requiring a camera and microphone to invigilate exams. If proctoring software will be used, this will be confirmed in the first week of class.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who believe they may need class or exam accommodations, including in the current context of remote learning, are encouraged to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (caladmin@sfu.ca or 778-782-3112).
