8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This is an Advanced level course providing an opportunity for in-depth exploration of the relationship of postural control and inter-limb coordination. Postural control is a pre-requisite for all activities of daily living, including reaching and locomotion. Both reaching and locomotion include the whole-body kinetic chain, including the limbs that are not directly involved in the activity. The theoretical component of this course will explore how the central nervous system accomplishes the task of coupling and de-coupling the limbs. Through patient
demonstrations, patient treatment sessions and practical sessions the course participant will gain an opportunity to translate theoretical knowledge into clinical applications to address postural control and inter-limb coordination problems to facilitate their professional practice knowledge development with respect to the Bobath concept. The model of Bobath clinical practice will be utilized to explore clinical reasoning at an Advanced level.
The course participant will gain an understanding of:
- The neural basis of postural control as a background for inter-limb coordination
- The role of inter-limb coordination in human locomotion control (head body and
limbs), reaching (bimanual/bilateral) and within postural transitions
- How addressing inter-limb relationships can positively influence movement recovery
e.g. how the treatment of the foot may influence the hand
15-day Basic IBITA/CBIA/NDTA Bobath course.
