Unit D

Module 9 ~ Lesson 4

 Interdependence of Body Systems

Physical activity promotes healthy muscles. Since the motor system supports other body systems in maintaining homeostasis, healthy muscles promote better overall health. However, physical activity can sometimes result in complications to the muscular system through injury or disease. These injuries or diseases can have an effect on other body systems. Luckily, technological advancements have been made to help maintain muscle fitness.

In this lesson, you will explore the following essential questions:

  • What are the main complications of the muscular system, and what technologies can be used to treat these conditions? 
  • How does the motor system support and interact with other body functions, including digestive, circulatory, respiratory, and excretory systems?
