Movement System Diagnoses - free ANPT online courses

  • Movement System 1 - Diagnoses in Neurologic Physical Therapy
  • Introduction and overview of recommendations from the ANPT Movement System Task Force
  • Movement System 2 - Task Analysis in Neurologic Physical Therapy
  • The ANPT Movement System Task Force developed an evidence-based framework for conducting task analyses for individuals with neurological disorders. In this webinar, we will present our proposed framework and discuss implications for implementation into entry-level curricula and clinical practice. The tasks used in this framework – sitting, standing, sit to stand, walking, step ups, and reach grasp/manipulation – were chosen following a consensus process amongst the task force (see Hedman, Quinn, Gill-Body et al 20171).
  • Movement System 3 - Balance Diagnoses in Neurologic Physical Therapy
  • The ANPT Movement System Task Force has developed an initial set of movement system diagnoses applicable to individuals with balance deficits. In this webinar, the development and descriptions of these proposed diagnostic labels will be presented. Case examples will be used to demonstrate how these balance diagnoses can be applied in practice.
