Introduction to Bobath (Module 1) 

Human Movement Analysis as a Basis of Clinical Intervention

Duration: All Day Saturday, Half Day Sunday

Course Tutor: Tim Walton

Course Description: This two-day module is designed to introduce participants to the concept of movement analysis in the assessment and treatment of adults with neurological or neuromuscular dysfunction.

The module consists of a theoretical introduction to movement analysis, practical sessions, and a patient demonstration.

Course Aims:

  • To discuss movement analysis based on the Bobath Concept
  • To explore and enhance skills of observation, analysis and facilitation in a neurologically intact subject
  • To link the evidence base and clinical practice

Learning Outcomes:

  • Describe key components relating to the analysis of positions/postural sets (sitting/standing) and movement sequences (sit to stand)
  • Identify key characteristics of efficient movement performance and recognise potential causes for lack of efficiency
  • Understand the wide postural and tonal variations in the intact neurological population
  • Demonstrate efficient handling skills to facilitate movement from one postural set to another (sit to stand to sit)
  • Apply knowledge of movement analysis to the assessment and treatment of patients with neurological dysfunction


Suitable for: Qualified Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists working in neurology
