RRD also provides various courses for medical professionals. These are aimed at different diagnostic groups. Below you can find more information about the courses offered by RRD.

Gait analysis in adults

.

For whom
Care professionals such as physiotherapists, rehabilitation physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, movement scientists and movement technologists who want to provide better treatments to people with disrupted gait functions.

Patient target groups
Adults after a stroke, with partial paraplegia or amputations, or in a postoperative recovery phase. Participants will have the opportunity to elaborate their own cases.

Duration
Seven-day course with a certificate of participation upon completion. Modified in-company trajectories are also possible.

During the gait analysis course, participants learn to observe gait patterns in a systematic and structured manner by analysing video recordings, performing clinical tests, measuring ground reaction forces and determining muscle activity with EMG, among other activities. In addition, participants learn to identify gait disorders on the basis of their findings and choose the most effective treatment.

The most important questions considered are: How can you look at walking? Which explanations are there for the abnormalities you observe? And how can you best help a person with this gait disorder?

Knowledge and experience from the own physiotherapy or rehabilitation practice form the starting point. After completion of the course, participants are also able to use the facilities that specialised gait image labs offer.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

.

For whom
Interdisciplinary treatment teams or individual care providers from rehabilitation centres, hospital departments and primary care.

Patient target groups
The course is based on experiences with people who suffer from chronic pain or fatigue. However, the therapy is also useful for everybody who has to live with disabilities or chronic conditions.

Duration
A total of five days. Units can be followed separately or as a coherent package.

ACT is a new form of cognitive behavioural therapy based on the objectives that patients set for themselves. This therapy does not primarily focus on symptoms and what a person can no longer do. Instead, it teaches patients to accept what they cannot do and motivates them to work on what makes life worthwhile for them.

RRD has a lot of experience with this pain rehabilitation therapy and believes it has a lot of added value. By offering this course to interdisciplinary treatment teams, we want to contribute to the broad implementation of ACT therapy in healthcare.

This practice-focused course consists of an introduction day, a basic training (2 days) and an integration training (2 days).
