Over the past decade, there has been a growing demand for precise and accurate methods to assess human movement. Analysing human movement and posture allows clinicians to observe movement execution and identify injury risk factors in order to make the best decisions to reduce the patient’s recovery time and implement effective treatment plans. Using key reference points enables the clinician to accurately describe, communicate and analyse the observed motion of the patient. This lecture will clarify some commonly used terms associated with movement deviation and identify frequently used reference points for describing motion.
The purpose of this course is to identify and define key reference points useful to describe motion and deviant movements as observed in 2D slow-motion video analysis.
This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
