  Bio 246 ã The Anatomy of Human Movement ã Peter Smith DPT, ATC ã www2.sunysuffolk.edu/smithpr  The Skin and Fascia ã The role of skin and fascia is often overlooked in the rehab setting. ã We will explore their roles and clinical applications. ã When dissecting in lab it is important to respect this tissue and take time to inspect it.  Overview of the Skin ã Largest organ of the body (15% of body weight) ã Skin thickness variable, normally 1-2 mm ã Protection  – chemical barrier (waterproof)  – physical barrier (tough)  – immune system activator ã Body temperature regulation  – blood flow through the skin  – sweat glands  – hairs ã Sensation  – sense touch, temperature and pain ã provides information outside of the body  Functions of the Integumentary System ã Largest organ of the body ã Protection  –  chemical, physical, and mechanical barrier: Stratified layers of keratinized cells create a tough barrier impermeable to most foreign invaders. ã Body temperature regulation is accomplished by:  – Regulation of blood flow to skin: dilation (cooling) and constriction (warming) of dermal vessels  – Increasing sweat gland secretions to cool the body ã Cutaneous sensation  –  receptors sense touch and pain and temperature
