COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course utilizes movement and gait analysis as a basis to target a clinician’s evaluation and treatment to maximize recovery after stroke. Motion analysis laboratory data is used to assist clinicians in understanding the mechanics, kinematics and muscle action during normal and pathologic gait. Evidence from multi-center trials as well as case studies, and the Instructor’s clinical expertise are all blended to assist participants with problem-solving treatment priorities that maximize recovery of function and movement. A bracing algorithm is introduced to assist clinician’s with making decisions about AFO and KAFO use for their patients after stroke.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES
At the end of this course attendees will be able to…

• Perform a detailed observational gait analysis for persons with neurologic deficits
• Classify individuals with stroke into one of 4 cluster-analysis groupings
• Prioritize gait deviations and problems for targeted treatment of movement dysfunction
• Utilize the Rancho ROADMAP to assist decision-making for orthotic intervention after stroke
• Be familiar with evidence-based treatment interventions for individuals with hemiparesis from stroke
