Applications in dual task rehabilitation from high tech to low: Covering the range for all treatment settings
October 13 @ 9:00 am
Each year, more research emerges to prove the importance of screening for and rehabilitating dual task intolerance. The majority of dual task (DT) research to date identifies elevated fall risk and uses methods in standing balance and walking. However, the research remains largely impractical for clinical translation, leaving methods either too expensive (virtual reality) or of limited human engagement. In this course, attendees should be prepared to extend their use of dual task repertoire and application from an approach that introduces distractions as a game or challenge, to a more sophisticated delivery of care in an effort to both habituate patients to distractions, and improve their reformatting of procedural memories, through automaticity. If your goal is to help your patients live and move automatically again, without having to devote their full attention to movement – this course is for you!
