Physics in Occupational Therapy Equipment
Incline Plane
Helps children understand rolling and climbing.
Helps children understand the concept of acceleration.
Medicine Ball
Newton's law of gravity regarding weight, torque, and force comes into play with the medicine ball.
Can be used to correct poor posture and muscle injuries.
Swing
Helps a child find their center of gravity and have a better concept of balance.
Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation: Two bodies attract each other with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.
Newton's Laws Applied in Occupational Therapy
Newton's third law
Newton's Law of Inertia
Newton's second law
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
An example is if you put an ankle weight on a patient's leg, the force of the mass and the downward pull will increase.
The reaction to that increase is that the opposing muscel will have to create a force to overcome that mass.
An object in motion (or at rest) will remain in motion (at rest) unless acted upon by an outside force.
It takes more effort for a person to start moving than it does to remain in motion.
Range of motion exercises are usually restricted to the upper extremity joints including the shoulder, elbow, wrist and fingers.
Sum of Forces= Mass times Acceleration
Deals with helping children understand their acceleration and momentum. If an extra force is applied to the patient's mass, the patient will tend to accelerate forwards instead of remaining at a static equilibruim.
The weight of the medicine ball helps build muscles in the patient's limbs.
The torque of the medicine ball will help build rotaional motion in the patient's limbs.
The force put on the medicine ball by the patient creates an equal and opposite force on the patient's muscles.
