Stroke Rehab: Upper limb stroke rehabilitation - part 1

May 15, 2019

Stroke rehabilitation maximises arm and hand function, helping persons with stroke regain the ability to perform many daily activities. Join this course to gain knowledge on neuroplasticity, evidence-based practices and factors that lead to functional improvement.

Course objectives

  • Understand the principles of neuroplasticity in stroke rehabilitation
  • List common lesions and their functional presentations
  • Revise upper limb anatomy and upper limb kinesiology
  • Identify appropriate upper limb outcome measures
  • Interpret upper limb assessment results and outline client-centred goal setting
  • List upper limb training approaches with evidence-based strategies
  • Recognise common compensations and how they affect hemiparetic upper limb recovery
  • List principles of closed, modified closed and open chain in training of the hemiparetic upper limb with functional tasks
  • Identify principles, contraindication and precautions on usage of functional electrical stimulation
  • Conduct practical session with patients

Course outline (2 days)
