Physiotherapy (Neurorehabilitation)

This course explores the evidence underpinning stroke rehabilitation and applies this to retraining motor control after stroke. Students are introduced to cutting-edge technology involved in stroke rehabilitation, including SaeboFlex, bilateral arm trainers and feedback devices for coordination. Students use equipment in the human movement laboratory to conduct small case studies using this technology, improving their knowledge of the biomechanics of movement and research methods. The various pathways include a strong emphasis on evidence-based practice, physiotherapy theory, research and specialist interests.
