Anatomy in Society
- Design earbuds, headphones and hearing aids to improve sound detection.
- Design the interior of electric cars with the intent of improving musculoskeletal efficiency.
- Develop better prosthesis for lower limb injuries and design exercises to improve core strength.
These are just a few of the projects that are the focus of Anatomy and Society, an elective course offered by the Division of Clinical Anatomy (in the School of Medicine). The course is for undergraduates who want to develop an understanding of relevant human anatomy and its influence on the design of commercial products and exercise. Guest speakers are experts in the fields of audiology, ergonomics and vehicle interior design, yoga and Pilates, and prosthetics/orthotics. The laboratory component exposes students to human anatomy through cadaver specimens, the 3D anatomy table, 3D digital images and models.
Note: class is limited to 15 students.
