Definition of Locomotion

Reviewed on 3/29/2021

Locomotion: Movement from one place to another. And the ability to locomote, to get from one place to the next. The locomotive system permits locomotion and consists of bones that are the framework of the skeleton, joints that hold the bones together and make movement possible, and muscles that contract and relax and make for movement. Locomotion is derived from the Latin "locus", place + "movere", move = move place.
