Biomechanics: assessing patients for Formthotics using 6 clinical tests.
Note: This video can be viewed online and requires an internet connection. The video cannot be downloaded and can only be accessed through your Osgo membership account dashboard.
A video presentation describing some simple clinical tests that can be used to assess a patient when dispensing Formthotics. The course serves as a refresher for some basic assessment skills and an introduction to biomechanics for some practitioners.
The video includes demonstrations, explanations of techniques and their relevance to practice.
- Develop skills in open and closed kinetic chain assessment, including:
- Sub talar joint assessment
- Alignment test
- Jack’s test
- Supination resistance test
- Proximal control test
- Neuromotor balance test
The aim of the course is to become familiar with 6 tests that can be used in a clinical setting without any particular equipment.
Presented by Tony Gavin who explains the underpinning theories behind these simple clinical tests.
The video can be revisited to recap the tests so that you may have a point of reference.
This video 54 minutes in length, but you are encouraged to practice the techniques described in the course which will require further time and repeated viewing. It is anticipated that this will lead to 3 hours of CPD activity.
