PRESENTATION

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)

OBJECTIVES

The main purpose of this course is to provide professionals of rehabilitation with the following scientific & technical skills:

  • Introduce students into the most useful biomechanical assessment methodologies in the context of a rehabilitation service.
  • Review of clinical cases where biomechanics is applied in the treatment of the most common impairments of the locomotor system.
  • Learn the last technological advances used in the biomechanical valuation of locomotor disorders.
  • Provide students with the ability of understanding the results from any biomechanical analysis.
  • Learn the foundations of the biomechanical technology and its application as a tool to improve the rehabilitation processes.

ADRESSED TO

• Professionals of physical medicine and rehabilitation.

CONTENTS

Module 1: Introduction to Biomechanical Evaluation in clinical contexts

  • Introduction.
  • Clinical utility of Biomechanical Evaluation in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders
    • Gait
    • Balance
    • Handling
    • Spine

Module 2: Clinical cases

Seven different pathologies will be introduced:

  • Gait analysis of a lower limb amputee (prosthesis adaptation)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome evaluation
  • Cervical Whiplash
  • Lumbar pain
  • Hallux Valgus
  • Stroke
  • Parkinson

Each of these cases will be analysed according to this scheme:

  1. Introduction
  2. Clinical impact
  3. Functional impairments and challenges for biomechanics
  4. Clinical case: Medical history, objectives of the biomechanical evaluation, material and methods, results and conclusions.
  5. Bibliography.

Students should do different activities and interpretation exercices regarding each case.
