10 10 Motor skills

11 Motor skills 11 Enabling gripping with the Saebo Flex splint Ergotherapy NEW The dynamic Saebo Flex hand orthosis is an optimal functional splint especially for neurological patients who can close their hand but no longer open it in a targeted manner. Thanks to the spring-guided finger extension system, the orthosis enables the patient to intensively practice grasping and reaching movements. This splint has a firm place in modern neurorehabilitation. The patient can practice repetitively and the tasks can be increased in a targeted manner, so that in addition to reaching and grasping movements, balance, bending and handling objects can also be practiced. The seminar is aimed at therapists who work in the clinic as well as resident colleagues, as the splint is also prescribed and the patient can continue the therapy very well in the home setting. In this practice-oriented seminar, the clinical experiences are presented in detail. The course participants have the opportunity to create the splint themselves and try it out in practice. Working directly on the patient makes this course particularly valuable. Date Saturday, Sunday, Sa Sun Allensbach Lecturer Yvonne Zeh Max, - Advanced training 13 Focal points of the seminar: Targeted selection of patients Measuring and adjusting the splint Practical work with patients Organizational tips

12 12 Motor skills Motor rehab for paraplegic syndrome Physiotherapy, occupational therapy, sports therapy, care, doctors NEW Date Saturday, Sunday, Sat Sun Heidelberg lecturer Wilfried Mießner Max, - advanced training points 16 The treatment of paraplegic patients is fundamentally different from the treatment of other central paralysis. In the case of completely paralyzed people, the focus is not only on restoring impaired motor skills, but above all on learning new movement patterns. This course should not only convey the necessary theoretical knowledge about the special pathophysiological principles and their effects to all those treating, but above all practical skills. This includes, in particular, the ability to tailor and impart transfer techniques individually to the person concerned. The central goal of therapy is not to correct the functional disorder. Rather, it is about enabling the patient to shape his life as independently as possible. That is why transfers such as from bed to wheelchair, from wheelchair to toilet or transferring to a car and loading the wheelchair are worked out, taking into account the different levels of paralysis. In addition, forms of therapy should be critically discussed against the background of evidence-based medicine and an outlook on future prospects for paraplegiology should be given. Focus of the seminar: Introduction to pathology and symptomatology Therapy-relevant problems such as spasticity, decubital ulcers, vegetative symptoms Therapeutic approaches and their evaluation Transitions of movement and transfers Training therapy and locomotion training Forecasts

13 Motor skills 13 CIMT Forced Use Therapy for moderate to mild arm palsy Physiotherapy, occupational therapy NEW Strokes or other neurological diseases can lead to paralysis and functional deficits in the upper extremities. For some years now, CIMT therapy (CIMT = Constrained-Induced Movement Therapy) has been established in such cases. The American founder, psychologist Edward Taub, believed that stroke patients often stop using the affected limbs because they are discouraged by the difficulties involved. This learned non-use, argued Taub, leads to a further worsening of the paralysis. To stop the process, the CIMT method forces the patient to move the affected limb intensely. This is done by restricting the unaffected part of the body over a longer period of time. The paralyzed person is used and trained intensively during this time. The development of new neural pathways in the brain is stimulated by repetitive exercises. The patients learn to use the paralyzed extremity again. Date Saturday, Sunday, Sa Sun Allensbach Lecturer Helmut Krause Max, - advanced training points 16 Course content: Background of the CIMT therapy and learned non-use Behavioral approach in CIMT therapy Practical implementation of findings and documentation of the transfer package to Taub

14 14 Motor skills EMG-triggered multi-channel electrical stimulation in neurorehabilitation Physiotherapy, occupational therapy Appointment Saturday, Sunday, Sa Sun Gerlingen lecturer Thomas Schick Max, - advanced training points 20 EMG-triggered multi-channel electrical stimulation is one of the modern therapy methods in neurorehabilitation. It pursues goals at the functional and activity level. Activities such as grabbing and transporting objects can be carried out in a targeted manner in an everyday context. EMG-triggered electrical stimulation can be easily combined with other proven concepts of neurorehabilitation. The further development of electrical stimulation devices enables, in addition to unilateral or bilateral use on the arms and hands, functional treatments of the legs and trunk. The seminar offers a comprehensive overview of the many possible uses of EMG-triggered multi-channel electrical stimulation. This is also achieved through the therapy programs individually created in the course and their intensive practical implementation. Focus of the seminar: Use of EMG multi-channel electrical stimulation in neurorehabilitation Motor learning with EMG-triggered multi-channel electrical stimulation Practical application of EMG multi-channel electrical stimulation with individually created programs Patient treatment and demonstration Combination of EMG-triggered multi-channel electrical stimulation with mirror therapy Combination of EMG-triggered multi-channel electrical stimulation with PC feedback in the sense of virtual reality

15 Motor skills 15 Vestibular training Physiotherapy, occupational therapy, doctors NEW Dizziness in its various forms is statistically one of the most common symptoms. Although it still plays almost no role in education and training to this day, according to the remedies catalog there is a physiotherapeutic treatment order (SO3a). The brochures distributed to patients (positioning or vertigo training) are often useless because nobody knows exactly when, what, how, how often and, above all, why something should be done. Fortunately, the diagnosis and treatment options are not only easy to carry out and very effective in their effect, they also meet the highest scientific standards (see guidelines of the German Society for Neurology; dizziness: diagnosis / therapy). The aim of the two-day course is that the successful examine vertigo patients and then treat them specifically. Among other things, this is facilitated by the fact that each clinical picture is illustrated with the help of video recordings. Date Saturday, Sunday, Sa Sun Heidelberg Lecturer Matthias Wiemer Max, - advanced training points 16 Course content: Definition of dizziness, anatomy, physiology, pathology and pathophysiology of the vestibular system Diseases (examination / treatment): motion sickness, acute peripheral dizziness (neuropathia vestibularis), paroxysmal benign Positional vertigo (PBLS), Menière's disease, central vertigo, cervical vertigo, central integration problems (ZIP), proprioceptive deficits

17 Motor skills 17 Evidence-based motor therapy in Parkinson's disease Physiotherapy, occupational therapy, sports therapy Parkinson's disease will appear much more frequently in the future, not least due to demographic developments. It is already the third most common neurological disease after stroke and multiple sclerosis. In this course, evidence-based, successful therapeutic approaches for Parkinson's disease are presented.Interdisciplinary approaches and the importance of training and sport are addressed as well as knowledge about Parkinson's disease. Course content at a glance: Symptoms of Parkinson's disease (recognizing early symptoms, prognoses) New treatment options: Deep brain stimulation, operative methods Therapeutic findings / scales Therapeutic approach Special features (on / off phenomenon, freezing, dyskinesia) Practical tips Appointment Monday, p.m. Gailingen lecturer Sabine Lamprecht, M. Sc. Max, - advanced training points 9 You will receive a comprehensive script. Many video examples illustrate the therapeutic approaches for different patients.

18 18 Motor skills Aid and device-supported arm rehabilitation after a stroke Ergotherapy, physiotherapy NEW Appointment Saturday, am Gerlingen lecturer Ullrich Thiel Max, - advanced training points 8 In therapeutic practice, treating the severely affected arm is a daily challenge. The progress made during inpatient rehabilitation can often not be expanded further in aftercare. The reasons for this are, in addition to insufficient treatment time, increasing spasticity, the beginning of contractures and learned non-use. Many new findings in the rehabilitation sciences show that an improvement in the motor skills of stroke patients is also long-term, i.e. H. is possible even after years. Nevertheless, device-supported and aid-supported therapy approaches in particular are only slowly finding their way into physical and occupational therapy practice. The seminar shows new therapeutic approaches and possibilities for the treatment of severe paresis after a stroke. The course participants are introduced to current treatment concepts theoretically and practically. Course content: Storage and prophylaxis Use of aids (Mobilas, Basic-Board, Helparm) Functional training with dynamic hand orthoses Organization of device-supported small groups Structuring of individual training programs

19 Motor skills 19 Halliwick intensive course in physiotherapy, occupational therapy, sports therapy The Halliwick concept is an established water therapy method with a large number of therapeutic intervention options. The focus of the intensive course comprises the 10 point program, a guide to motor learning in water. For documentation of changes in the patient in the water, but also v. a. on land, suitable assessment procedures are discussed and applied. The neurological patient in particular is confronted with a task-oriented and goal-oriented situation that can offer him multiple options for reactions and adaptations. Since reaction times are longer in water, the patient can work out changes of position in a relatively safe environment, practice repeatedly, gain security and, as a possible goal, learn to move independently. Therapy in the water allows goals to be pursued at all levels of the ICF. An intensive mediation as well as a practical examination of the specific properties of the water leads to a safe handling. At the end of the course, the course participant will have the knowledge to safely treat and support patients with a wide variety of diseases in the water. Date Thursday to Sunday, Thu Sun Allensbach lecturer Thomas Schick Max, - advanced training points 40 A Halliwick intensive course comprises 40 teaching units (half in the water) including patient treatment in the water under supervision.

20 20 Motor Skills Mulligan Concept Mobilization with Movement: Introduction to physiotherapy, doctors, masseurs (with manual therapy) Appointment Saturday, Sunday, Sa Sun Allensbach lecturer Dr. Claus Beyerlein Max, - Further education points 16 The Mulligan-Concept, named after the New Zealand physiotherapist Brian Mulligan, is a modern and evidence-oriented concept in the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal patients. The effectiveness of the techniques has already been proven in numerous studies. The combination of passive mobilization by the therapist and active movement of the patient, the so-called Mobilization with Movement (MWM), has a positive influence on the structural and neurophysiological level. Treatment according to the Mulligan Concept is very dynamic and function-oriented, as the patient and their individual problem are at the center of the clinical reasoning process. Course content: Introduction to the Mobilization with Movement philosophy and treatment approaches using selected examples Manual therapy according to Mulligan on the upper / lower extremity as well as on the cervical / thoracic spine and lumbar spine, reference to evidence and study status within the Mulligan concept

21 Motor skills 21 Mobilization with Movement: Ergotherapy workshop In the search for innovative treatment options for patients with musculoskeletal problems, the New Zealand physiotherapist Brian Mulligan developed the concept named after him at the end of the 1970s. It is used in the treatment of orthopedic traumatological patients with musculoskeletal problems. The combination of passive manual mobilization by the therapist and simultaneous active movement of the patient (mobilization with movement) opens up a multitude of new treatment options. This 1-day workshop is aimed in particular at occupational therapists who are looking for techniques that can be easily, effectively and quickly implemented in daily practice. The course content is tailored to the field of work of occupational therapists and only includes techniques on the upper extremity. Course content: Introduction to manual therapeutic mobilization with active movement Understanding and clinical application of the Mulligan philosophy Getting to know the core technology MWM on the upper extremity (fingers, hand, elbow, shoulder) Evidence-based practice based on scientific studies Appointment Monday, p.m. Allensbach lecturer Dr. Claus Beyerlein Max, - advanced training points 8

Building on this, possible applications in the field of neuropsychology are presented and discussed.In addition to theoretical and scientific aspects, the seminar should focus on practical experience. get to know different mindfulness-based interventions and can use the self-experience to get a direct picture of the effects and benefits of the exercises. What is allowed to be, and what is allowed to be, changes. Course content: Basics of mindfulness Mindfulness and psychotherapy research Application in neuropsychology Practical exercises

35 Speech Therapy / Neuropsychology 35 Complaint Validation (Neuro-) Psychology NEW Psychological test results depend in a special way on the cooperativity of the person examined. In the context of an expert report, with an inherent high secondary gain in illness, the possibility of a suboptimal test motivation represents the greatest challenge to the expert and must be carefully examined. Insufficient cooperativity leads to invalid test profiles; if it is not recognized, the expert assessment must necessarily be wrong. In the acute clinic and in rehabilitation we are confronted in a different way with the possibility of having to identify a possibly hidden manipulative response behavior, with far-reaching consequences for diagnosis and therapy. The seminar familiarizes people with approaches to modern complaint validation, introduces diagnostic approaches and discusses important conceptual problems in differential diagnostics. Course contents: validity of individual test profiles cooperativity in (neuro-) psychological examinations simulation and aggravation; other forms of manipulative response behavior Standardized complaint validation tests (BAT) Possibilities and limits of the use of BAT Case studies Appointment Friday at Heidelberg Lecturer Dr. Thomas Merten Max, - Accreditation GNP accreditation applied for

36 36 Speech Therapy / Neuropsychology Speech and Dementia Speech Therapy NEW Appointment Saturday, clock Konstanz Lecturer Inga Lange Max, - Further education points 8 Dementia can be accompanied by impairments of speech and communication. A brief overview of the classification of dementia diseases is given. The focus here is on Alzheimer's dementia and primarily progressive aphasia. The focus of the event will be on the corresponding diagnostics and on the presentation of various direct and indirect therapy methods. In particular, disorder-specific and participation-oriented approaches are presented. Important aspects for the indication of the therapy and the continuous adjustment in the course of the disease are discussed. Course content: Classification of dementia diseases Diagnostic procedures Indications for therapy Direct and indirect therapy procedures

37 Speech Therapy / Neuropsychology 37 Functional Neuroanatomy (Neuro-) Psychology In this introductory course you will get to know the anatomical structure of the central nervous system and will first be made familiar with the basic systems (visual, acoustic, sensible processing and motor system). Starting from this, we develop the anatomical foundations of more complex, primarily neuropsychological functions: from perception to information processing to motor planning; Spatial perception; Memory; Language processing; Emotion processing. Controversial views, e.g. B. localized functions vs. network organization are included. At the same time, you will learn to use landmarks in clinical CCT / cmrt images to orientate yourself and to localize the functional systems. This allows you to correlate lesions in the cmrt with clinical neuropsychological syndromes such as executive disorders, hemianopsia and neglect, mnestic disorders, apraxias, etc. This is explained in a practical way using case studies, including videos, and supplemented by cross-references to current research results in functional imaging. Your three-dimensional conception of the CNS is additionally enriched by other media. In order to anchor what has been learned, cases are discussed in small groups, and learning controls are carried out in a relaxed atmosphere.

They learn how tracheostomy tubes work and the associated impairments for the patient. The focus of the course is on the risk assessment for weaning from the tracheostomy tube according to the Bad Heilbrunn graded model. Relevant studies are presented on the various topics. The theoretical content is illustrated by videos of patients from the Bad Heilbrunn Specialist Clinic with tracheostomy tubes. After the seminar, they should be able to create a structured treatment plan based on the Bad Heilbrunn step model for weaning from the tracheostomy tube. Furthermore, fears and uncertainties in handling tracheostomy tubes should be reduced. Course content: Types of tracheostomy tubes How to unblock the tube Weaning from the tracheostomy tube Assessing the risk of pneumonia

39 Speech Therapy / Neuropsychology 39 The Dementia Syndrome in Neuropsychology (Neuro-) Psychology In an aging society, in addition to medical aspects, questions about changes in mental performance become essential. The literature differentiates between normal, pathological and even optimal aging. In this training, changes that are typical of age (cognitive, emotional, social) should be presented. In addition to the demographic challenges and a neurobiological and neuropsychological overview section, neuropsychological test procedures for diagnosis in the older age range are presented and discussed. Neurodegenerative diseases are discussed (e.g. multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease), the MCI concept and various forms of dementia are presented. Differential diagnostic questions such as mild cognitive disorder vs. dementia or dementia vs. depression are discussed. The area of ​​fitness to drive (neuropsychological examination and practical driving behavior test) follows. After the diagnostic part, drug and non-drug therapy options are discussed in detail. Aspects of family work as well as participation, legal capacity and care are also dealt with. Appointment Friday, p.m. Gerlingen Lecturer Dr. Wolfgang Kringler Max, - Accreditation GNP accreditation applies for Course content: Basics (definition, classification, forms of dementia) Diagnostic options (procedure, test procedures, differential diagnoses) Therapeutic approaches Dealing with relatives Legal framework (e.g. fitness to drive) Dementia network: Contact addresses

40 40 Speech Therapy / Neuropsychology Texts in the participation-oriented therapy of aphasia of various disorders and degrees of severity Speech therapy NEW Date Friday, Saturday, Fri Sa Allensbach Lecturer Dr. Ingrid Weng Max, - Further education points 12 The use of texts, especially everyday texts, in aphasia therapy offers a variety of possibilities to prepare those affected to participate in everyday life. Depending on the patient, the main focus of the disorder and the severity, different types of text are suitable for therapy: e.g. B. ticket, newspaper article, advertising brochure, technical data sheet or weather forecast. In the advanced training event, the text processing processes will first be explained as a model. In a second step, it is worked out which sub-processes cause problems for certain patient groups due to their linguistic and general cognitive limitations and what that means for everyday life; the role of executive functions in dealing with texts is also discussed.
