  4. Other Course Information

    A. Objectives

    1. Critique clinical guidelines and/or protocols integrating movement science principles.

    2. Develop a clinical guideline for an identified movement disorder based on appropriate sources of evidence.

    3. Compare and contrast approaches to motion analysis (eg: observation, instrumentation) across the life span

    4. Evaluate the reliability and validity of motion analysis data

    5. Interpret the results of an instrumented motion assessment including kinetic and kinematic gait analysis.

    6. Perform a motion analysis
