    right; Posterior
  • 32

    left; Anterior
  • 33
    flexibility most important; lightweight; insecure axaial and limb attachments
  • 34
    massive; secure axail and limb attachments; weight-bearing most important
  • 35
    What organs are protected, at least in part, by the pelvic girdle?
    Uterus, bladdar, rectum, small intestine, and reproductive organs
  • 36
    What is the difference between the true pelvis and the false pelvis?
    The true pelvis is small bowl-like shape containing the unrinary bladder and sexual organs. The false pelvis is the area been the alla or wings of the pelvis. This is a much larger area and contains some of the abdominal organs like part of the small intestine and part of the colon.

    This is a (female/male) pelvis because?
    card image
    Female; It is adapted for childbearing, defines birth canal, Farther apart then a males, the sacrum is wider, shorter and less curved then a males. The pelvic inlet (brim) is wider; oval from side to side.
  • 38
    Deduce why the pelvis bones of a four-legged animal such as a cat or pig are less massive than those of the human.
    The pelvic bones of a two-legged animal such as a human have to carry his whole weight, divided by two. A four-legged animal such as a pig divides its weight over four legs, so each leg and each pelvic bone has to bear only a fourth of the animal's weight. As the strain on the bones is a half than in the two-legged case, the bones can be less massive.
  • 39
    A person instinctively curls over his abdominal area in times of danger. Why?
    To prevent a smaller target and also to protect the internal organs and genitalia.
  • 40
    For what anatomical reason do many women appear to be slightly knock-kneed?
    Biologically, women have wider pelvises than men. The angle of their hips turn the legs slightly inward, making some to actually touch at the knees.
  • 41
    How might this anatomical arrangement contribute to knee injuries in female athletes?
    they can be more prone to knee related injuries, such as ACL tears due to high intensity straight knee landing or impact since the knee is already in a weak position.
  • 42
    What does fallen arches mean?
    It mean flat feet or flat footed
