You get to take a close look at the bones and muscles of animals and how they allow us to move. Then learn about the various ways plants can move, and perform experiments to investigate their movement.
After completing this tutorial, you will be able to complete the following:
What are the functions of the musculoskeletal system?
~ The musculoskeletal system lends our bodies their shape, posture, and support, and allows us to move.
How can the musculoskeletal system be damaged?
~ The musculoskeletal system can be damaged by sudden impacts or the twisting of limbs and joints.
How can broken bones be treated?
~ Broken bones can be treated through realigning and immobilizing them with a plaster cast, joining them with platinum pins and plates, or grafting via tissue engineering.
What are prosthetics and how do they help people with musculoskeletal disabilities?
~ Prosthetics are artificial limbs. Prosthetics can help to improve the quality of life for those with musculoskeletal disabilities.
