      Upper Extremity: The Multi-Tool Restored is a course that explores the upper extremities from a functional-structural standpoint. The upper extremities are considered in various aspects of the roles they play: fingers-hand as fine manipulators / interactive tools, hand-wrist as a grasping / manipulating tool, the wrist-forearm-elbow as a angular-rotational-lateral-push-pull device, the shoulder as a stabilizer, distal-UE magnifier, and as a speed reducer for gait. Hence, the Upper Extremity will be considered in several functional aspects with very different foci of treatment.
