Two-Dimensional Motion Analysis of Movement Disorders, 4/11/2024


About the Course:
This course provides answers to the questions will two-dimensional video slow motion technology be helpful in clinical decision-making; can I trust the information the technology provides; can I integrate, manage, and analyze the new information; and can I implement the technology in my practice? This course addresses the benefits and barriers to the use of two- dimensional video slow-motion analysis. Techniques and tactics (recording, analyzing, storing, and retrieving video data) which can improve the validity and reliability of clinical motion analysis are presented. Attendees can expect this course will improve their skills at: facilitating a higher level of patient engagement; improving communication with client and referral sources (“picture is worth thousand words”); providing visual data when appealing to health insurance carriers on denials for coverage; and Improving the process of the therapist professional development continuing education by using patient video data from the therapist individual practice for reflective self-directed learning and obtaining second opinions from peers.
