Course Aim
On completion of the course, the student should, in a scientific way, based on current laws and regulations, with an ethical approach, for individuals with a) functional impairment in the respiratory organs b) circulatory organs c) age-related physical disability, d) physical and psychosomatic physical disabilities as well as for e) adults and f) children with sensorimotor physical disabilities be able to:
  1. with physiotherapeutic methods examine and assess the individual's impairments, mobility and motor behavior
  2. suggest and explain physiotherapeutic measures to improve or maintain the individual's mobility and health
  3. give examples of and justification for physiotherapeutic measures to promote health or prevent health problems at community level
  4. be able to describe these individuals' function condition based on body function and structure, activity and participation (ICF-dimensions)
  5. be able to suggest and instruct in the use of aids and locomotion technology for people with function impairments

  • Physiotheraphy in impairments in the respiratory organs
  • Physiotheraphy in impairments in the circulatory organs.
  • Physiotheraphy for individuals with age-related physical disabilities
  • Physiotheraphy for individuals with mental disease and disabilities
  • Physiotheraphy for children and adults caused by injuries and diseases in the central nervous system.
  • International classification of functioning, disability and health, ICF
  • Prescription process for aids
  • Transfer techniques and patient safety handling methods

Learning takes place within each subarea through independent work with literature studies, study assignments and laboratory sessions in groups where manual skills are exercised and through lectures where theoretical and practical teaching is integrated. In addition to this, field studies are included. The student's own active knowledge acquisition is crucial. In all tuition forms, the student is stimulated and encouraged to carry out problem-solving and to have a critical reflective attitude.

  • Learning outcomes 1-2, concerning physiotherapy in physical disability in the respiration and circulatory organs, are examined through written examination (test 0001, 0002).
  • Learning outcomes 1-3, concerning physiotherapy for individuals with age-related physical disabilities, are examined through a written assignment and a seminar (test 0003).
  • Learning outcomes 1-5, concerning physiotherapy for adults with sensorimotor physical disabilities caused by injury or disease in the central nervous system, are examined with a written assignment and practical examination (test 0004).
  • Learning outcomes 1-3, concerning physiotherapy for individuals with mental disease and mental disability, are examined in the form of a written assignment (test 0005).
  • Learning outcomes 1-3, concerning physiotherapy for children with neuromuscular and sensory physical disabilities and learning disability, are examined through a written assignment and a seminar (test 0006).
Criteria for a Pass grade and a Pass with credit are stated in the study guide.

This is a first-cycle course. Study guide is provided in the course room in Canvas. A pass in this course is a prerequisite for Work Placement and the thesis.
