The term “quality of movement” is frequently used by clinicians. However the measurement of quality of movement is often poorly defined. This workshop will consider different methods of clinical assessment of quality of movement and examine how
biomechanics can add measure to allow this to be quantified.
This will include different methods of assessing displacement, velocity and acceleration of the whole of the body and parts of the body during different functional tasks and their impact on overall physiological cost.
These methods will be explored in more detail by a student led laboratory session using movement analysis equipment in the Movement Analysis Laboratory. This will include a consideration of different tasks and further exploration of the measurements which may be used to assess quality of movement.
Course aimed at: Allied Health and Medical Professionals including physiotherapists, OT’s and Orthotists and Podiatrists.
Facilitator: Prof Jim Richards, Professor of Biomechanics.
Full day, Cost £90
(Please note. This is the second in a series of four workshops which form part of the Assessment and Measurement of Movement Masters module. The workshops can be purchased individually or as part of the full masters module).
