Examples of movements in the transverse plane about longitudinal joint axes are rotations at the vertebrae, shoulder, and hip joints. Pronation and supination of the forearm at the radioulnar joints is also a transverse FIGURE 1-17 Movements in the sagittal plane. Sagittal plane movements are typically flexions and extensions or some forward or backward turning exercise. The movements can take place about a joint axis, the center of gravity, or an external axis. 20 Section i Foundations of Human Movement FIGURE 1-18 Movements in the frontal plane.

Frontal plane movements about the center of gravity or an external point involve sideways movement of the body, which is more difficult than movement to the front or back. plane movement. The axis for all of these movements is an imaginary line running longitudinally through the vertebrae, shoulder, radioulnar, or the hip joints. This is a common movement in gymnastics, dance, and ice skating. Additionally, numerous examples can be found in dance, skating, and gymnastics in which the athlete performs transverse plane movements about an external axis running through a pivot point between the foot and the ground.

The reference frame should be clearly identified so that the results can be interpreted accordingly and, because reference systems vary among researchers, the reference system and reference point must be identified before comparing and contrasting results between studies. For example, some researchers label a fully extended forearm as a 180° position, and others label the position 0°. After 30° of Y Y B FIGURE 1-13 Absolute versus relative reference frame. Left, An absolute reference frame measures the segment angle (A) with respect to the distal joint.
