Ch a p t er 4 Musculoskeletal Systems and Human Movement Human movement is a complex process involving an infinite variety of positional changes, which are controlled by a wide range of internal systems and external factors. A sequence of movement can be influenced by anatomic mechanics, physiologic conditions, psychologic factors, and sociologic and environmental interaction. This chapter focuses on the anatomic, biomechanical, and physiologic aspects of movement. Most movements, including specific movements used in sports, have been previously learned and, after months or years of practice, have become reflexive and fluent.

However, this mechanical disadvantage is compensated by the gain in speed of the lever movement. When a force is applied to a lever, the lever rotates about the fulcrum. Torque is an expression for how a force changes the angular motion of a lever, which signifies the angular velocity. To calculate the torque M, the magnitude of the force F is multiplied by the distance l between the force and the rotating point. In Figure 4-1, the torque is calculated as M=F×1 Equilibrium is achieved when the torque on the left equals that on the right: ML = MR Or: L × 11 = F × 12 Human skeletal levers and torques are discussed in the following section.
