Despite of the fact that Biomechanical assessment is close related to the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation field, there are still many professionals who remark the lack of penetration of this discipline in healthcare systems. This fact became evident in an study undertook in 2010 by the Spanish Society of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (SERMEF) in collaboration with the Instituto de Biomecánica de Valencia (IBV). This study claims the urgent necessity of incorporating, among rehabilitators, the latest innovative knowledge in the field of biomechanics of locomotor system, the technological tools for functional evaluation and their applicability in the rehabilitation processes.
With the purposes of changing this situation, different stakeholders at European level, including ESPRM, SERMEF and IBV, in collaboration with different European Universities, have developed for the last 3 years an specific learning program, which is especially aimed at presenting rehabilitators how biomechanics can provide new and complementary ways to manage physical rehabilitation in clinical contexts. This course, which pretends to foster the progression of the speciality and its harmonization at European level, has been carried out under the support of the project Biomechanics4Rehab, which has been funded by the European Union through the Erasmus+ Program (2013-1-TR1-LEO05-47549)
The main purpose of this course is to provide professionals of rehabilitation with the following scientific & technical skills:
• Professionals of physical medicine and rehabilitation.
Module 1: Introduction to Biomechanical Evaluation in clinical contexts
Module 2: Clinical cases
Seven different pathologies will be introduced:
Each of these cases will be analysed according to this scheme:
Students should do different activities and interpretation exercices regarding each case.
