SURG 72Q: Anatomy and Design Innovations

Preference to Sophomores. This Introductory Seminar is for undergraduates who want to expand their understanding of the influence of human anatomy on the design of commercial products and prosthesis, and the performance of core strengthening exercises, such as: automobile interior design, headphones and ear buds design, exoskeletons and yoga/Pilates. Students will learn how societal advancements have evolved to increasingly accommodate human form and function. Guest speakers are experts in their fields of design, prosthetics and exercise. The laboratory component exposes students to human anatomy via cadaver material, 3D digital images, the 3D anatomy table, apps and models. By the end of this course, students will be able to: describe the concepts of anatomically correct automotive interior design; explain how properly designed head phones and ear buds aid in sound detection; explain how thoughtfully choreographed yoga and Pilates movements incorporate proper joint and muscle movement; explain how properly designed joint prosthesis aids in joint movement and muscle function; and, deliver group presentations using proper communication skills. The class is limited to 14 students.
