Evidence-Based Lower Limb Retraining
Retraining lower limb skills following stroke and brain injury – a three day workshop.
What muscles are essential for sitting and standing balance during reaching?
Why is acceleration of the trunk forward (ie hip flexion) important for standing up?
How does hip flexion at the beginning of swing phase contribute to knee flexion during walking?
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
movement problems and skills involving the lower limbs, taking into account neural, biomechanical, musculoskeletal and environmental factors
Critically evaluate and modify
teaching skills to optimise practice and training
