Title: Implementing mental practice to help elicit upper limb motor recovery post-stroke
Dan Eaves, Rachel Stockley and Sarah Moore will deliver their popular workshop presentation from the UK Stroke Forum, Birmingham, England. Learn how to create and deliver your own mental practice session, that is immersive and realistic for a stroke survivor, with a simple co-created layered script. An evidence-based intervention that can be used instead of hand splinting and Bobath therapy to elicit movement in the hand and arm.
Learning objectives: After this session participants will:
- Be able to summarise the current evidence for mental practice for the recovery of the upper limb after stroke
- Apply skills and knowledge about how to implement mental practice in their clinical setting
- Understand how to use a framework to consider the key components of a mental practice script and begin to develop a mental practice scripts for their setting
Dr Daniel Eaves (He/him), Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Science (Biomechanics), Newcastle University, UK
As an academic at Newcastle University, Daniel studies the processes underlying human movement. He is particularly interested in the interplay between perception and action, across the disciplines of Sport and Exercise, Rehabilitation, Psychology, and Neuroscience. For over a decade, Daniel has investigated the effects of mental practice on human movement using behavioural and neurophysiological measures, with around 20 publications on this topic. Daniel is one of four academics who co-lead the Research in Imagery and Observation (RIO) Group. Please check out the RIO Group online: https://riogroup.weebly.com.
