Monday 24 June, 8am-5pm
NeuroRehab Allied Health Network, 76 Mahoneys Road (cnr Edgars Road), Thomastown VIC 3074
Presented by Dr Simone Dorsch and Dr Kate Scrivener – StrokeEd
- What muscles are essential for sitting and standing balance during reaching?
- Why is acceleration of the trunk forward (i.e. hip flexion) important for standing up?
- How does hip flexion at the beginning of swing phase contribute to knee flexion during walking?
This workshop teaches therapists how to minimise lower limb impairments in people post-stroke and increase engagement in activities such as sitting, standing up, sitting down and walking. Workshop content is based on research about movement science/motor relearning and evidence-based interventions.
The workshop is run over 3 days and accepts a maximum of 24 registrants. This enables small groups to work with clients and receive feedback from the presenters during clinical sessions.
The workshop will be of interest to physiotherapists from hospital and community based settings, as well as occupational therapists, who teach adults following stroke and acquired brain impairment, as well as university lecturers. The workshop focuses on retraining of limb skills.
