Description: The purpose of this lecture is to present knowledge about biomechanics of the trunk, anatomy and function of the trunk muscles, and the role of muscles acting on the trunk in tasks such as sitting and standing. While stroke and spinal cord injury are the primary conditions used during the presentation, the principles apply to other neurological conditions.

Learning objectives: By the end of the presentation, listeners will;

  • Understand the biomechanics and anatomy of muscles of the trunk, the skeletal structure and bilateral innervation of these muscles
  • Have considered implications of the biomechanics, anatomy and research evidence for clinical intervention
