EM177: ROMA - IBITA Basic Bobath Course

The Bobath concept is a problem solving approach aimed at the evaluation and treatment of people with movement disorders, postural control and function, caused by a central nervous system injury. This approach to adult rehabilitation with central neurological damage originates from the work of Berta and Karel Bobath and has evolved over the last 50 years.

The rationale for its current application is based on 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 theoretical foundations of the concept and translate them into clinical and technical skills aimed at tackling the main rehabilitative problems of adult patients with cerebral injury.

The teaching activity will be divided into theoretical lessons, practices and clinics with demonstration of patient treatment by the teacher in a collective session and by the participants in working couples.

Each activity of the learners will be supervised by the teacher for a constant refinement of the techniques: the goal is to make the student more and more independent in the clinical and competent reasoning in the design and structuring of the specific rehabilitation intervention for each patient. The course is organized according to the IBITA international regulations and the final certification allows access to advanced Bobath courses.

Specific aims:

  • Acquire specific terminology to describe the rehabilitative approach to the adult neurological patient according to the Bobath Concept
  • Updating knowledge in the biomechanical and neurophysiological fields, especially in relation to postural control, locomotion and reach-to-grasp
  • Refine the ability to observe and acquire models for the evaluation of neurological patient problems
  • Implement treatment techniques
  • Refine and exercise a correct manual in the treatment of the adult neurological patient - Support the comparison and discussion among participants to train the clinical reasoning
  • Promote team work
  • Promote the evidence based approach based on updated literature
