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.


Cranial Motion of Sidebending and Rotation

Purpose: The illustration has three phases. The first phase begins with simple rotation of the sphenoid and occiput on their vertical axes, sphenoid left/occiput right, followed by sidebending  of both bones to their right on their AP axes. In the third phase, the motions are repeated but now combined as sidebending and rotation all in one movement.
