What is body mechanics?

body mechanic principles
Body Mechanic Principles
  • Center of gravity
  • Line of gravity
  • Base of support
  • Body alignment
  • Balance
  • Coordinated Movements
  • Assess before acting
  • Slide, roll, push, or pull rather than lift
  • Assistance
effects of immobility on the body
Effects of Immobility on the Body
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Respiratory
  • Circulatory
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Urinary
  • What other areas are effected?
turning a client
Turning a Client
  • Place arms across chest

  • Arms across chest
  • Lift head with chin on chest
  • Stand at mid-section
  • Spread feet shoulder length with one foot slightly in front of other
  • Flex knees and hips
range of motion
Range of Motion
  • Active Range of Motion (AROM)
  • Passive Range of Motion (PROM)
  • Support areas proximal and distal to the joint
  • Repeat exercises 2 to 5 times
  • Stop if c/o pain or if resistance met
special considerations
Special Considerations
