Effectiveness, Efficiency, and Energy
Walking is essential to every person’s life and critical to independence. Under normal conditions, it is effortless and thoughtless. After neurological injury, walking still retains its importance but it is often missing the ease, the fluidity, and the beauty of normal gait. In this course, coordination, effort, and energy will be studied as vital components of functional walking. After all, an unsteady, unreliable gait is hardly what a patient needs to resume their life of independence and salient activities. If you are ready to build your knowledge base and continue your study of gait, this specialty course is for you.
