Bobath Concept: Human Movement Analysis as a Basis of Clinical Intervention

Human Movement Analysis

The Bobath Concept is a problem solving approach to the assessment and treatment of individuals with disturbances of function, movement and postural control due to a lesion of the central nervous system.

The rationale for current practice is based upon present day knowledge of motor control, motor learning and neural plasticity, as well as on knowledge of biomechanics.

Course description:
This course is run over three weekends with the first module designed to introduce participants to the concept of movement analysis in the assessment and treatment of adults with neurological or neuromuscular dysfunction and the second and third modules will expand on this concept further.
The course consists of a theoretical introduction to movement analysis, practical sessions, and a patient demonstration.
