Course Description

This is an IBITA certified Advanced level Bobath course offered to physiotherapists and occupational therapists in possession of an IBITA-recognized Basic Course certificate. In addition to theory, clinical reasoning, and practical sessions the Advanced course offers supervised/mentored treatment sessions with patients.

This course will explore the topic of postural control, a fundamental aspect of human movement. The theoretical component of this course will provide an understanding of the posture-movement problem, how this relates to current motor control theory, the underlying neurophysiology, how postural control is integral to the selective movement, how selective movement is an aspect of postural control, and the inter-relationship of postural control and
balance. The practical and clinical aspects of this course will explore the analysis of the posture-movement problem from both a macro perspective e.g. trunk postural control for selective limb movement or limb postural control for selective trunk movement, to a micro perspective e.g. palmar stability for selective digit movement.

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 functional recovery in persons with neurological conditions. The model of Bobath
clinical practice (MBCP) will be utilized to explore clinical reasoning at an Advanced level.

Course Objectives:
The course participant will gain an understanding of:

  • The posture-movement problem and how this relates to motor control theory
  •  Postural control models and the underpinning neurophysiology
  • Postural control strategies, motor modules, metrics, and its application to clinical practice
  • The development of clinical reasoning and handling at an Advanced level
  • The use of the model of Bobath clinical practice (MBCP) to explicate the clinical presentation and treatment plan of an individual with a neurological-related movement problem

15-day Basic IBITA/CBIA/NDTA Bobath course.
