Motion Animations to Demonstrate Musculoskeletal Functioning

All of the animations will be more easily understood if they can be repeated at least once. In the classroom they illustrate the point better when put on continuous repeat and then stop the motion when necessary to illustrate a specific point.


Bucket Handle Motion - On the Right - Of the Lower Ribs

Purpose: On the right side of the rib cage the expansion of the rib cage illustrates the motion of the lower ribs, the “bucket handle” motion. The sternum is also in motion illustrating the “pump” handle motion. Ignore the left rib cage.
