Anatomy of the Shoulder Joint

This Chart shows the major anatomical structures of the shoulder joint; including bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles. The shoulder joint is essentially a ball and socket joint and its stability relies on surrounding muscles, tendons and ligaments of the rotator cuff group including: teres minor, supraspinatus, infraspinatus and subscapularis.

Anatomy of the Spine Bones & Major Ligaments

This Chart shows the major anatomical structures of the spine : including bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles. The spine is a complex series of interlinked bones supported by a combination of ligaments and muscles.

Functional Anatomy Of Circulatory System

This chart provides sound and clearly illustrated information about how the blood circulates round the body, description and illustration of the lungs and how air is inhaled into the body. Information is also given about blood flow through the heart as well as an explanation about the electrical conduction system which regulates the heart beat.

Guidelines For Monitoring Heart Rate & Exercise

This chart provides guidelines for monitoring heart rate and exercise. It includes three sections: Section 1 tells you how to monitor your heart rate and shows on a graph the effects of lifestyle on average heart rate values. Section 2 provides a table which shows how the heart rate responds to different intensities of work. Section 3 gives the structure of exercise and training in relation to intensity, duration and frequency to achieve better fitness.

Inflatable Ball Exercise - Level One

This chart gives advice on how to engage the abdominal muscles correctly and establish good spinal alignment to achieve stability and optimal performance when learning to exercise on the inflatable ball.

Inflatable Ball Exercise - Level Three

The exercises in level 3 require an even greater amount of work from the abdominal muscles to be able to do this group of exercises correctly. The last two exercises are very advanced, which means they require even greater control and strength.

Inflatable Ball Exercise - Level Two

Level 2 requires a combination of balance and strength to keep the spine in good neutral alignment. The major muscle groups working in each exercise are identified together with important information on how to adopt the correct start position before doing the exercise.
