Applied Technology in Clinical Human Movement Analysis

This two-day course aims to provide comprehensive training in the principles of clinical technology essential to physiotherapy development

This includes practical sessions in human movement analysis, the mechanics of movement (joint angles, centre of mass, EMG) and its related clinical theories, and an introduction to movement abnormalities. Several real case studies will be discussed throughout the course.

Your trainer will be Mohammad Al-Amri.

Who it’s for

This course will be of considerable interest to those who want to gain skills needed to use technology in applying their clinical knowledge to assist in diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. It is anticipated that it will benefit individuals from a variety of disciplines including physiotherapy, biomechanics, rehabilitation, neurology, and orthopaedic.

What you’ll learn

The overall aim of this course is to acquaint delegates with various clinical movement techniques and their best use in physiotherapy and rehabilitation settings. Delegates will use this knowledge to explore and challenge current clinical practice based on portable movement analysis data and use it to inform innovative rehabilitation.

Interactive elements include:

  • reflect on current clinical practice relating to movement analysis.
  • practical sessions using the portable movement analysis toolkit.
  • learn about interpretation of a clinical movement analysis report using a standardised template for reporting
  • apply this knowledge to the rehabilitation of individuals with Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction
  • discuss the opportunities and challenges of implementing the movement analysis intervention


  • Describe the normal kinematics and kinetics of the joints during functional activities.
  • Identify movement deviations that contribute to common patient complaints.
  • Perform movement analysis using portable motion capture platforms (e.g. Xsens MVN Aanlyze)
  • Explain the role of using EMG in movement analysis.

This course is partially funded by Xsens Technologies B.V.
