Why was this course created?
We surveyed the physical therapy continuing education unit (CEU) landscape, and outside of one off gait analysis / running biomechanics CEU courses we identified a gap in motion analysis course offerings. Namely, there was no comprehensive and systematic overview of all various forms of motion capture and analysis in clinical context.
Who is the motion analysis CEU course for?
The 3D Markerless Motion Analysis for the Clinic course is intended for physical therapy clinic directors, PT clinic owners, as well as new graduates and everyone in between. With the rapid progression of technology over recent years, barriers to motion capture, and motion analysis have drastically fallen. Utilizing evidence, and case studies, we aim to show that motion analysis is now accessible for any PT clinics who are interested in pushing the innovation envelope further.
What are the recommended course prerequisites?
What will I learn?
The course will cover a brief history of motion capture, various motion capture systems and their accuracy, ease of use, and cost trade-offs, how these mocap systems compare to the status quo in most clinics - unaided visual observation. After a laying a foundation based on evidence, the course will jump into a case study to illustrate the practical aspects of how motion analysis can be incorporated in the clinical setting.
What other topics does the motion analysis CEU course add to/tie into?
How will this course will help my clinic, staff, or my patients?
The right information at the disposal of the clinician has been shown to improve health outcomes. Motion analysis can demonstrate to patients, and referring physicians that your clinic is not different by virtue of purchasing a piece of equipment, but rather by incorporating a progressive methodology of aiding clinical reasoning with technology. Patient engagement, patient education, and patient retention improvements become possible by adoption of motion analysis.
Could you use this technology to differentiate your clinic, add new services (e.g. prehab), and add new customers?
Why take this course from EuMotus?
