Learning outcomes

------------------------ MM: METODOLOGIA DELLA RIABILITAZIONE NEUROLOGICA ------------------------ At the end of the course, students should have acquired basic strategies to perform a search of the literature using the common search engines. They should have acquired the main research methods in rehabilitation with regard to different types of experimental design (single case study, RCT etc.). They should have acquired the main mode of execution of a research project and formulation of a data collection form. They will be able to transfer the data to a spreadsheet and to use simple methods of statistical analysis (graphics production, elementary analysis). ------------------------ MM: SEMEIOTICA NEURORIABILITATIVA ------------------------ ⎫ To know the basic values of the examination neurorehabilitation; ⎫ To know and to know how to use the methodologies for the evaluation of the patient with neurological problems; ⎫ To correlate the theoretical knowledge with the data that come to light from the observation and evaluation of the patient; ⎫ To perform a physiotherapy diagnosis of neurological patient in order to set up the different stages of physiotherapy treatment ------------------------ MM: RIABILITAZIONE NEUROLOGICA ------------------------ Allow the student to obtain an adequate understanding of the issues surrounding riablilitative diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system. To this end, it will refer to physiology notions of nervous-muscle-joint systems, neurology and neuro-pathophysiology, emphasizing the aspects of greatest relevance rehabilitation. Provide the student with the same elements for the programming of a rehabilitation intervention in the most common neurological diseases

Syllabus

------------------------ MM: METODOLOGIA DELLA RIABILITAZIONE NEUROLOGICA ------------------------ • Principles of rehabilitation models in the history of neurological rehabilitation • Formulation of the plan of treatment of neurological patients • Use of clinical rating scales and tests validated in the field of neurorehabilitation • Use of robotic equipment in neurorehabilitation: exoskeletons Systems (upper and lower limb) and end-effector systems (upper and lower limb) • Adapted Physical Activity in neurological diseases • Major neuromotor rehabilitation techniques: or Vojta or Kabat or Bobath or Perfected or Carr & Shepherd or Brunnstrom's Movement Therapy or therapeutic locomotor Exercise or Constraint Induced Movement Therapy or Mirror Therapy or Mental Practice ------------------------ MM: SEMEIOTICA NEURORIABILITATIVA ------------------------ ⎫ introduction to the discipline ⎫ systemic theory: role of the nervous system as a fundamental component of the system male; ⎫ problems resulting from neurological disorders: alterations of superior cortical functions, sphincter continence, motor functions and sensitivity; ⎫ identification of the meaningful signs of alteration for the rehabilitation in different pathologies of nervous system: pyramidal syndrome, extrapyramidal, cerebellar, of lower motor neuron; ⎫ functional evaluation of patient with alteration in central nervous system; ⎫ functional evaluation of patient with alteration in peripheral nervous system; ⎫ neurological tests ------------------------ MM: RIABILITAZIONE NEUROLOGICA ------------------------ Clinical evolution and disabling aspects of the most common neurological diseases. Disorders of cognitive function, disability consequent and potential interactions with motor deficits. psychological disorders that are associated with neurological diseases and potential interactions with the rehabilitation plan. Pathogenesis of signs resulting from disabling injuries at different levels of the central and peripheral nervous system. How a particular neurological deficit (deficit of strength, deficit somatosensazione, hypertonia etc.) Interferes with normal movement.
