OVERVIEW

The word Chinesiology originates from Greek and means study of the movement. Therefore, the teaching of chinesiology provides the student with knowledge about the functioning of bones, muscles, joints system and the observation of human body  in the major postural changes.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

To acquire the basic principles of nursing care in prevention, care and rehabilitation in pediatrics. To know the physiological bases of psychomotor, psychological and cognitive development, movement, verbal and nonverbal communication, language and learning. Know the general interventions for prevention, care and rehabilitation of neuropsychiatric diseases, especially in cooperation with the multiprofessional infantile neuroscience team, with other pediatric disciplines and other health professions. To know the general notions of chinesiology as the science of movement, the functional properties of the different tissues of the locomotor apparatus and the segmental movement and articulatory biomechanics. To know the clinical frameworks and the main causes of psychomotor and mental delay and the neuropsychiatric interventions of prevention, therapy and rehabilitation

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of the course the student will be able to:
• observe patient and  recognize reference points and axial deviations
• know the major joints of the human body and their movements according to the system of planes and axles
• know the major muscles, contraction modes, synergies and actions
• know the carrying out of the major movements and the human gait
 

Teaching methods

20 hours of lessons divided into 18 frontal hours and 2 hours of experiece and interactive workouts in the gym
