Human Movement

An Introduction

Duration: 25 mins

This video will assist workers to safely support older clients who require assistance with basic physical movements.

Understanding the basic concepts of human movement is essential for people who work in the health, aged and community care sectors. This knowledge will help them in their work with clients, colleagues and other health professionals.

The language used in the video is clear and easy to understand and live action and animation are used to demonstrate and explain the skeletal and muscular systems, biomechanics and a range of human movements.

The video Human Movement – An Introduction supports:

  • the delivery of the human movement component of a number of units in qualifications at Certificate III and IV level in the Health Training Package
  • the delivery of musculo-skeletal anatomy and biomechanics in the manual handling component of a number of qualifications at Certificate III level iin the Community Services Training Package.

The resource also comes with a Trainer Guide and support materials that can be customised for different working and training situations.

The Trainer Guide includes:

  • information on how to use the video
  • language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) tips
  • mapping of the video to relevant Training Package Units
  • the script for the video Human Movement – An Introduction

Human Movement – An Introduction complements the video Healthy Bodies: An introduction to the human body systems.
