Learning outcomes

Describe postures and movements of each body district using an appropriate terminology. Use observation and evaluation procedures to describe posture and motor behaviour of both healthy and not healthy subjects during the different chronological ages, identifying postural and movements disorders. Acquire the ability to collect, select and interpret the data that are useful to formulate hypothesis on the functional diagnosis through the identification of structural and functional impairments, limitations of activities and restrictions of participation. Perform the postural alignment of the person in different positions. Facilitate a patient during the postural changes, transfers and walking activity using, when it is necessary, the appropriated assistive devices by applying the ergonomics rules under current legislation. Perform the mobilization of body districts respecting the articular physiology, using the correct grips and applying the ergonomics rules.
