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.


Sideslip Motion of the Occiput on C1, the Atlas

Purpose: Part of a sequence of occipital motions which, when grouped together, illustrate the complex motion of the occiput on the atlas. This motion is only one of those motions, the sidebending/side sideslip motion of the condyles of the occiput (green) on the superior articular facets of the atlas, C1 (light blue).
