Through lectures, labs, and patient demonstrations, participants will have an opportunity to develop their understanding and skill in using transitional activities to remediate the functional limitations of patients with neuromuscular system impairments, across the continuum of care. Problem solving for individual patient needs will be discussed, demonstrated, and practiced.
Upon completion of this seminar the participants will be able to:
- Assess and facilitate coordinated movement of the head, body, and extremities during transitions.
- Explain the importance of this integration and summarize typical effective and atypical movement strategies frequently used by patients.
- Examine strategies for making sit <-> supine easier.
- Facilitate sit to stand to treat almost any problem.
- Analyze floor transfers – how do we do it, how should
patients do it.
- Integrate concepts such as postural control, balance
responses, activation and muscle activity, and others to
explain the big picture.
