      The goal Systematic comprehension of movement organization based on detailed knowledge of movement physiology. Evaluation of movement based on assessment with tests and scales. Analysis of healthy and pathological movements.
      The outcome New methods in rehabilitation and neurorehabilitation in multidisciplinary team consisting of medical and technical experts.
      Contents of lectures Neurophysiological basis of movement. Movement organization (reflex, rhythmic, volitional, hierarchy, single joint characteristics). Motor deficits (spasticity, tremor, rigidity, ataxia, akinesia, asynergy, asymmetry) in various diseases (CVA, PD, SCI, MS). Methods for evaluation of motor deficits (clinical and neurological tests, tests of motor performance, scales) .
      Contents of exercises Study research in neurorehabilitation, Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) and restoration of movement with orthosis and prosthesis.
