|Disco stew is a fun interactive learning activity. He helps
you to learn about joints and movement in the human body. Disco Stew is a VRML
character. Therefore you must have a VRML plugin installed. Once in the realm
of Disco Stew, you may move him around and make him dance by first clicking on study, then
on Stew himself.
Joints provide the body with a larger range of motion. There are several
types of joints located throughout the body. For example, the ball-in-socket, which
is associated with the shoulder as well as the hip joint, allows humans with a moving
range of 180°. The hinge joint, which is associated with the elbows and knees, has
a lesser range of motion due to ligaments and bones.
