Applied Technology in Clinical Human Movement Analysis
This three 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, moments, EMG) and its related clinical theories, and an introduction to movement abnormalities.

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 orthopaedics.
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.
- 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 commercially available motion capture platforms (eg Vicon Nexus and Xsens MVN BIOMECH).
- Explain the role of using EMG in movement analysis.
