EM147: Workshop: Manipulation and dexterity: rehabilitating the task according to the Bobath Concept

Introduction and objectives of the course:

The Bobath concept is a problem solving approach aimed at evaluating and treating people with movement disorders, postural control and function, caused by a lesion of the central nervous system. This approach to adult rehabilitation with central neurological damage stems from the work of Berta and Karel Bobath and has evolved over the last 70 years. The rationale for its application is rooted in current neuroscientific knowledge related to motor control, motor learning, neural and muscular plasticity and current biomechanical knowledge. The aim of the course is to deepen the knowledge on the mechanisms of recovery of the hand after central lesion and to deepen the facilitation techniques for digitization, manipulation and dexterity aimed at the practice of the task emphasizing the importance of a correct balance between qualitative and quantitative practice, guided and autonomous practice. The training objective is to offer the participant the opportunity to acquire new practical strategies and clinical reasoning to address the functional problems of the upper limb of neurological patients in a more detailed and targeted way in a functional perspective.

Specific objectives:

- Promote the evidence based approach based on updated literature

- Acquire a specific terminology to describe the rehabilitative approach to the adult neurological patient with functional problems of reaching and grasping according to the Bobath Concept

- Updating knowledge in the biomechanical and neurophysiological field especially in relation to digitization and manipulation

- Refine the ability to observe and analyze functional gestures of the upper limb and the hand - Implement specific treatment techniques and improve manual skills

- Support the discussion and discussion between participants and teachers and train clinical reasoning
