Functional Electrical Stimulation in Neurorehabilitation
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3393 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course provides a review of the principles of functional electrical stimulation (FES) and will identify and discuss the various uses of FES in the rehabilitation of persons with neurological injury or pathology. The course will focus on FES in the upper extremity, in gait, and as a means of facilitating exercises. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Endurance Assessment and Intervention
Presented by Pamela Bartlo, PT, DPT, CCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3404 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
It is important to assess a patient's endurance and then provide interventions to improve it. It is not enough to just say someone has decreased endurance. We need to quantify it and progress it. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

PTs can apply evidence-based interventions to improve dementia care. This session reviews the etiology of common behaviors. Cognitive-emotion, multi-sensory, animal-assisted, and exercise interventions to reduce agitation are discussed as well as specific strategies for improving task-related engagement. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Gait Analysis Series: Examination and Interventions for Gait Recovery in Persons with Neurological Disorder
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3255 Level: Advanced4 Hours
This series consists of two courses, #3174 and #3175. Part 1 will build on the learner’s knowledge of normal gait kinematics and translate them into a comprehensive gait evaluation for patients with neurological disorders. Part 2 will use a comprehensive gait analysis as a foundation to create a plan of care with gait task-specific interventions for patients with neurological disorders.
