Teaching period

4th semester


Learning outcomes

  • Comprehension of the basic kinesiotherapeutic methods for neurological diseases,
  • Comprehension of the evaluation and choice rationale for the appropriate method of kinesiotherapeutic approach,

Assessment of the lab part of Methods and Techniques in Neuromuscular Re-education takes place on a daily basis with three more formal exam-type assessments which comprise of practical demonstration of techniques and methods from students. Except from the daily evaluation of students and the intermediate evaluation, a final examination takes place at the end of the semester. This examination is conducted by the teaching professors personally with the students divided in pairs, in order to recreate the skills they have obtained during the semester on each other. The final grade of the subject derives from the average of the theoretical and laboratory part and has to be 5 out of 10 or higher. Nevertheless, the students need to achieve 5 out of 10 for each of the parts to consider the subject passed. The examination’s duration is 15-30 minutes. After passing the theoretical and laboratory part, the students are awarded with 5 ECTS credits.
