This unit aims to introduce the students to clinical assessment in the management of movement disorders. Students will learn to evaluate, quantify and interpret less complex motor and sensory impairments and activities of postural control and gait.Students will develop risk analysis skills for manual handling and taught the principles of protecting themselves and their client during manual handling activities.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Understand the physiological mechanisms behind impairments of weakness, sensory loss, and stiffness;

2. Demonstrate competence in assessment of impairments of stiffness (joint and muscle), weakness (primary and secondary), and peripheral sensory (proproiceptive, somatosensory, temperature);

3. Demonstrate competance in the description of normal postural control and gait, and be able to describe dysfunctional movement;

4. Begin to use clinical reasoning skills to interpret movement dysfunction in relation to the underlying impairments; and

5. Apply principles of safe manual handling.
