CE Credit Hours: 1.00 Continuing Education Credit Hours
CEU Course Description
Difficulties in walking with Diabetic Neuropathy (DN) patients results in higher risk of falling and injuries. General gat training is effective in training lower extremity strength and endurance, but there is little prior research done on Task-Oriented motor training focusing on timing and coordination of lower extremity movements through goal-directed practice and repetition. The goal of this CEU course is to investigate the recruitment of Task-Oriented (TO) motor training to determine influences on the gait characteristics of DN patients as an alternative to the traditional gait training. We will delve into a study consisting of a 12 week training with the following outcome measures: Vertical and Horizontal Ground Reaction Forces, Timed Up and Go, and the Fall Efficacy Scale-International. This course is based on an article by BioMed Central Ltd.
