Leverage: skeletal system allows movement by co-ordinated action of muscles on bones, providing leverage Attachment of muscles: parts of skeleton (usually flat bones) provide surface for muscles to attach Protection: skeleton protects vital tissues/organs e.g. skull protects brain Shape/Support: skeleton gives body shape. Provides framework for soft tissues (muscles, etc.) & prevent it from collapsing in heap Blood cells: bones not solid - inside long bones are BONE MARROW which produce & replace white (generally in shafts of long bones) & red blood cells (generally at ends of longs bones & some flat bones) Mineral store: skeleton acts as MINERAL RESERVE (e.g. calcium) vital for bone growth & health. Minerals transported round body when needed for growth/repair (e.g. injury)
