  • anatomical
  • Because animals can change orientation with respect to their environment, and because appendages (arms, legs, tentacles, etc.) can change position with respect to the main body, it is important that anatomical terms of location refer to the organism when it is in its standard anatomical position. (wikipedia.org)
  • Thus, all descriptions are with respect to the organism in its standard anatomical position, even when the organism in question has appendages in another position. (wikipedia.org)
  • Standard anatomical position is rigidly defined for human anatomy. (wikipedia.org)
  • In standard anatomical position, the human body is standing erect and at rest. (wikipedia.org)
  • The penis in the anatomical position lies against the abdomen, hence the dorsal surface of the penis is actually anterior when the penis is pointing down between the legs. (wikipedia.org)
  • In humans, the anatomical position of the skull has been agreed by international convention to be the Frankfurt plane or Frankfort plane, a position in which the lower margins of the orbits, the orbitales, and the upper margins of the ear canals, the poria, all lie in the same horizontal plane. (wikipedia.org)
  • In dogs, the skull is the more diverse within the species than any other mammal so the dorsal, ventral, and lateral views are the most important positions The Frankfurt plane was established at the World Congress on Anthropology in Frankfurt am Main, Germany in 1884, and decreed as the anatomical position of the human skull. (wikipedia.org)
  • nonetheless, the Frankfurt plane is not considered to be the anatomical position for most non-primate species. (wikipedia.org)
  • For dogs, the standard anatomical position is having the abdomen ventral by each paw standing on the supporting surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • worn
  • The most common place to see the decapitation of human heads being worn or presented as trophy heads are on painted cylinder vases of the Late Classic period and usually involve the Hero Twins or some type of Creation myth. (wikipedia.org)

  • normally
  • It was decided that a plane passing through the inferior margin of the left orbit (the point called the left orbitale) and the upper margin of each ear canal or external auditory meatus, a point called the porion, was most nearly parallel to the surface of the earth at the position the head is normally carried in the living subject. (wikipedia.org)
  • Correct spotting involves knowing when to intervene and assist with a lift, and encouraging a training partner to push beyond the point in which they would normally 'rack' the weight (return it to its stationary position). (wikipedia.org)

  • months
  • Main outcome measures The primary outcome was change in skull shape from baseline to 24 months of age assessed using plagiocephalometry (anthropometric measurement instrument). (bmj.com)
  • tilt
  • The head-tilt/chin-lift and jaw-thrust maneuvers are useful for the former while the recovery position is useful for the latter. (wikipedia.org)
  • If head-tilt/chin-lift and jaw-thrust maneuvers are performed with any objects in the airways it may dislodge them further down the airways and thereby cause more blockage and harder removal. (wikipedia.org)
  • flat
  • Another exercise to utilize a spotter would be the triceps exercise Skull Crushers in which the lifter lowers an E-Z bar towards their head while lying flat on the bench. (wikipedia.org)
  • seen
  • Other times, the position of the target must be determined by its relationship to an anatomic structure that can be seen on scanning using conventional radiographs or by ventriculography. (google.es)
  • Holding a head by the hair is seen as a sign of disrespect. (wikipedia.org)
  • back of the head
  • For this reason, recording is performed in the temporal region above the cheekbone/zygomatic arch, through the eyes, below the jaw, and from the back of the head. (wikipedia.org)
  • forward
  • 8 When an individual is in a simulated gait position with the right leg forward and the left trailing, the left shoulder extensors test weak, despite being strong in a normal stance. (dynamicchiropractic.com)

  • Normal facilitation and inhibition of muscles can be demonstrated by manual muscle testing the shoulder flexors and extensors with an individual in various gait positions. (dynamicchiropractic.com)
  • known
  • Another version of an aided neckbreaker, known as an elevated neckbreaker, sees one member of the attacking tag team get the opponent up into an elevated position to allow a wrestler to perform a neckbreaker from a greater height. (wikipedia.org)
  • lower
  • Next a circular saw cut is given across the skull, keeping the cutting edge of the saw always on the top of the skin edge surrounding the lower part of the head, this obviously makes the cut in line with the pencil mark over the head. (indmedica.com)
