Task specific training is recommended in every guideline for post stroke rehabilitation. This course will introduce you to the biomechanical analysis of two of the tasks that therapists train on a regular basis and will help you to understand the difference between compensatory movements and missing essential components. It will also cover how to plan and implement evidenced based training strategies for whole and part task training programmes to aid those with a neurological movement disorder.


    Course Aims

    • To introduce how to undertake kinematic and kinetic movement analysis of patients with a movement disorder.
    • To suggest treatment programmes based on current evidence that patients can follow in a safe and effective way with and without the therapist present.


    Learning Outcomes

    By the end of the course the participant should be able to:

    • Understand the principles behind the movement science approach to treatment of neurological disorders.
    • Be able to analyse sit to stand and gait deviations in people with hemiplegia and other movement disorders.
    • Develop training strategies to address sit to stand and gait abnormalities.


    Who will Benefit

    • This course is mainly aimed at therapists working with stroke but the principles are applicable to other acquired neurological disorders such as head injury.
