Advanced Technologies for the Upper Extremity

This course is designed to introduce and expose therapists to new technologies and its application within the rehabilitation setting.  This course is also intended to guide the therapist in the use, prescription, and treatment design when using various advanced technologies.  The course consists of lecture and lab. The lecture portion of the program covers the latest treatment techniques, common clinical concerns, supporting research, and introduces advanced technologies specifically designed for upper extremity stroke rehabilitation.

During the lab section of the program, therapists will learn how the principles of motor learning are implemented using advanced technologies.  They will learn about the technology used at the Neurological Recovery center including Hocoma and Saebo products. The lab section will also give clinicians a chance to have hands-on experience with the different technologies available. Towards the end of the training, clinicians will have the opportunity to discuss how they could integrate advanced technologies into their everyday clinical practice.

Upon completion of this online course the participant will be able to:

  1. Define the principles of motor learning and neuroplasticity and apply current evidence in upper extremity (UE) after neurologic insult.
  2. Apply techniques to incorporate motor learning and neuroplastic principles with and without advanced technology for UE recovery in neurologic rehabilitation.
  3. Discuss practical application of recovery-focused training across the continuum of care from acute rehabilitation to community integration.
  4. Experience the use of advanced technology in designing an intervention program based on motor learning principles.
