This three-day module is a prerequisite for attending an IBITA-recognized foundation course.

It is designed to introduce participants to the concept of movement analysis in the evaluation and treatment of adults with neurological or neuromuscular dysfunction. The module consists of a theoretical introduction to motion analysis, practical sessions and a patient demonstration.


To discuss motion analysis based on the Bobath Concept.
To explore and develop observation, analysis, and facilitation skills in a neurologically intact subject.
Linking evidence-based information to clinical practice.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

To define the basic components for the analysis of positions/postural sets (setting/standing) and movement sequences (sitting to standing to sitting).
Identify the key characteristics of efficient movement performance and recognize potential causes of lack of efficiency.
To understand the wide range of postural and tone variations in the normal adult population.
Demonstrating effective manual dexterity to facilitate transition from one set of postures to another (standing to sitting).
Will be able to apply movement analysis knowledge to the evaluation and treatment of patients with neurological dysfunction.
