1 Anatomical Opposites1. anterior vs. posterior 2. superior vs. inferior 3. medial vs. lateral 4. proximal vs. distal 5. palmar vs. plantar 6. abduction vs. adduction 7. eversion vs. inversion8. internal rotation vs. external rotation 9. flexion vs. extension 10. plantar flexion vs. dorsiflexion 11. radial deviation vs. ulnar deviation*The terms in italics have been on previous vocabulary lists…and should be in your notes!
2 Anatomical Opposites Foldable Create a foldable using a white sheet of paper.1. Hold the paper the long way (portrait layout or “hot dog”)2. Fold the ends until they meet in the middle, creating two long columns3. Measure one inch sections and draw a line across both front flaps4. Cut the sections to create 11 flaps5. Write one anatomical term on one flap and the opposite term on the flap directly across6. Draw a picture underneath the flap to represent the definition.SEE MS. BROWN FOR AN EXAMPLE
3 Anatomical PositionStand straight up with palms forward
4 Anterior or front- EX. Knees are located on the anterior surface of the bodyPosterior or back- EX. Scapula is located on the posterior surface of the body
5 Superior – upper or above another. - EX: The head is superior to the feetInferior – lower or below another.- EX: The feet are inferior to the head.
6 Medial – toward the mid-line of the body Lateral – away from the mid-line of the body
7 Proximal – toward the point of attachment to the body Distal – Away from the point of attachment to the body
