The course has had 4 modules, divided into different sessions that address issues related to virtual reality and biomechanical analysis in stroke, including in all sessions visual multimedia material with examples of use and relevant information.
It has been free and a total of 147 people from 28 countries around the world have participated. The course has been taught from March 26 to May 21 with a duration of 40 hours. Among those registered, there are relevant members of the European Society of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ESPRM).
The course has 4 modules, divided into different sessions that address issues related to virtual reality and biomechanical analysis in stroke, including in all sessions visual multimedia material with examples of use and relevant information. Thanks to the comments and contributions of the students, it was possible to validate the course and adapt the content to the needs of the professionals to whom it is addressed. 90% of the participants have been rehabilitative doctors.
The aim of Brain4Train is the development and implementation of an online free access course to assure at the maximum number of European medical specialist a worthy education and training regarding the applicability of biomechanical technology systems (BTS) and virtual reality (VR) in the context of treatment of neurological patients especially those who have suffered a Stroke.
Brain4Train is deeply concerned in promoting work-based learning in all its forms, with special attention to apprenticeship type training. During the last years, scientific generation of innovative knowledge focused on the field of biomechanical systems technology and VR and their applicability on the assessment and rehabilitation of the main disorders of cerebrovascular accident CVA has grown significantly.
The technological breakthrough knowledge in recent years often stays in scientific and university environments. This project aims to extend the technological knowledge to professionals in the clinical setting so they can improve the educational methodologies currently used.
