Hang around here long enough and you’re going to hear one word quite a bit.
In this clip from 1992, Anatomy in Clay® Learning System (ahem) founder Jon Zahourek makes it clear that the arm can’t be studied in isolation.
The Anatomy in Clay MANIKEN® model offers a full view of the entire pectoral appendicular system.
Pectoral: related to the breast or chest.
Appendicular: of or relating to an appendage or limb.
System: an assemblage or combination of things or parts forming a complex or unitary whole.
Not the arm.
Not even the arm plus scapula.
The entire system—arm, scapula and clavicle.
A complete idea.
A complete anatomical thought.
