EM159: What does "Facilitation" mean in the Bobath Concept?

The Bobath concept is a problem solving approach aimed at evaluating and treating people with movement, postural control and function disorders caused by an injury to the central nervous system. This approach to adult rehabilitation with acquired neurological damage originates from the work of Berta and Karel Bobath and has evolved over the past 60 years. The rationale for its application has its roots in current neuroscientific knowledge related to motor control, motor learning, neural and muscular plasticity and current biomechanical knowledge. The Bobath Concept is a manual approach and facilitation is the characterizing element that makes this treatment model unique by diversifying it from the remaining methods. It is based on the expert handling of the physiotherapist, but considers the therapeutic effects connected with the choice of the task and its characteristics, as well as the role of the environment. Facilitation must be tailor-made based on the patient's potential and in line with the principles that guide and support neural plasticity and motor learning.
The aim of the course is to develop clinical reasoning and comparison with teachers of great clinical experience to develop technical skills aimed at implementing the ability to maximize the effectiveness of the neurorehabilitation intervention in different clinical situations secondary to central injury.
