This course is offered in cooperation with Elsevier Science and utilizes the textbook "Stroke Rehabilitation: Guidelines for Exercise & Training to Optimize Motor Skill "c2003. The last decade has seen rapid progress in the treatment and rehabilitation of stroke patients. This long-awaited guide covers essential task and context specific exercises and training regimes for optimal functional recovery. Based on scientific rationale and the latest clinical research, this book emphasizes the training of effective functional motor performance using methods that both provide a stimulus to the acquisition of skill and increase strength, endurance and fitness. This course is essential to those dealing with stroke patients in all rehabilitation settings!
Module 1 covers the rehabilitation environment, outcome measurement and training guidelines for balance and ambulation.
Module 2 covers the rehabilitation environment, outcome measurement and training guidelines for sit to stand training and upper extremity mobility.
Module 3 covers the rehabilitation environment, outcome measurement, impairments and adaptations of stroke patients, strength training principles and physical conditioning
Entire textbook is 301 pages.
This package contains the required textbook and test materials for Module 1 only.
Course Length: 8.0 contact hours
Instructional Level: Beginner/Intermediate
Course Goals:
This course is intended to instruct the student through self-paced study on the treatment principles for treating a stroke patient emphasizing early mobility in respect to balance training and ambulation and to identify specific treatment principles for the rehabilitation environment for stroke patients.
