Lesson 1: Anatomical Position & Anatomical Directions

Learn about the "Anatomical Position," a reference position where the body stands upright, head facing forward, arms at the sides with palms forward, and feet parallel. Also, understand "Anatomical Directions," terms used to describe the locations of body structures, such as posterior (back) and anterior (front).
