Albertov Course 2022/2023

The last part of the course was focused on therapy of the upper limb.

Colleagues also dealt with a severely spastic limb, complicated by secondary changes in the soft tissues and a disorder of the trunk posture.

Sensory restoration is a prerequisite for improving the motor function of the hand. The connection of individual motor components within the framework of Task oriented training is in accordance with the current knowledge of EBM about the effectiveness of training.

A group of physiotherapists and occupational therapists who got to know each other on the course, established friendly relationships and understood their indispensable roles in patient therapy.
