  • To develop 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 position/postural sets (supine and sitting) and movement sequences (supine to sit, sit to supine)
  • Analyse movement in terms of efficiency and recognise potential causes for lack of efficiency
  • Understand the wide posture and tonal variations within neurologically intact population
  • Problem solve appropriate handling in individual models with respect to facilitation of movement
