Acknowledgement of Country We respectfully acknowledge the Indigenous Elders, custodians, their descendants and kin of this land past and present.

Syllabus Biomechanical and kinesiological principles related to analysis of normal and abnormal movements. Upper limb assessments. Principles and techniques for treating diseases and injuries of the upper limb.

Introduction Incorporating the principles of Person, Environment and Occupation within a framework of knowledge of musculoskeletal structure and function and pathophysiology, this unit provides the foundations of biomechanics, kinesiology, hand therapy and orthotics.

Students learn the terminology and theory of biomechanics and kinesiology and the application of these concepts to occupational therapy practice.  Assessment of range of motion and muscle strength using manual muscle testing and goniometry are reviewed and students are required to demonstrate these assessment techniques.

The Orthoses and Rehabilitation Science unit provides students with the knowledge and skills required for beginning practice in hand therapy.  Upper limb anatomy is reviewed and students are required to relate biomechanical problems to occupational performance issues.  Assessment and treatment techniques are explored while incorporating an understanding of tissue healing principles.  In particular, students learn assessment and treatment techniques for the management of oedema, scarring, range of motion and strength.

Orthoses are reviewed with analysis of the clinical reasoning and the biomechanical principles involved in their construction.  Students learn to make orthoses designed to immobilise the wrist and hand, to restrict movement of finger joints and to stabilize the thumb.  Within this unit students learn theory and skills which are applicable to a range of occupational therapy settings including paediatrics, vocational rehabilitation and adult physical rehabilitation.

Unit Learning Outcomes All graduates of Curtin University achieve a set of nine graduate attributes during their course of study. These tell an employer that, through your studies, you have acquired discipline knowledge and a range of other skills and attributes which employers say would be useful in a professional setting. Each unit in your course addresses the graduate attributes through a clearly identified set of learning outcomes. They form a vital part in the process referred to as assurance of learning. The learning outcomes tell you what you are expected to know, understand or be able to do in order to be successful in this unit. Each assessment for this unit is carefully designed to test your achievement of one or more of the unit learning outcomes. On successfully completing all of the assessments you will have achieved all of these learning outcomes.

Your course has been designed so that on graduating we can say you will have achieved all of Curtin's Graduate Attributes through the assurance of learning process in each unit.

Curtin's Graduate Attributes

Learning Activities The focus of teaching in this unit is the practical application of theories and concepts. Students will have the opportunity to use a variety of assessment and treatment tools and to apply these to case study examples. The teaching emphasis allows students to experience the assessment and treatment media they are likely to see in clinical practice.

Videos of patients, and classroom demonstration by staff and students, are used to assist learning.

Thorough preparation and pre-reading is essential and students are required to work collaboratively in laboratories and tutorials. Additional suggested readings are listed however exam questions are taken only from the essential preparation readings. Students will be asked to role-play as patients and therapists and are required to actively participate in class.

Unit information and materials are accessed via Blackboard and students are required to check the discussion board of the unit a minimum of two times per week. When questions arise students are advised to read the discussion board on Blackboard to check if their query has previously been addressed. Students are reminded the discussion board is available to be read by all students of the unit, teaching staff of the unit and Head of School, and as such all communication needs to be written in a professional manner.

 

On successful completion of this unit students can: Graduate Attributes addressed

1 Identify principles of kinesiology and biomechanics using correct terminology

2 Assess joint motion and muscle strength using goniometry and manual muscle testing

3 Apply clinical reasoning to assess and treat common injuries and diseases of the upper limb

4 Apply biomechanical and anatomical principles to and critically appraise orthoses fabrication and its relevance to the Occupational Therapy process

5 Incorporate evidence based practice principles in to clinical case studies

Apply discipline knowledge Thinking skills (use analytical skills to solve problems)

Information skills (confidence to investigate new ideas)

Communication skills Technology skillsLearning how to learn (apply principles learnt to new situations) (confidence to tackle unfamiliar problems)

4. Exam

Pass requirements

Students are required to attempt all of the assessments for this unit. Submission of a blank assignment does not constitute ‘completing’ an assessment. To pass this unit students need to achieve an overall mark of 50.

Fair assessment through moderation

Moderation describes a quality assurance process to ensure that assessments are appropriate to the learning outcomes, and that student work is evaluated consistently by assessors. Minimum standards for the moderation of assessment are described in the Assessment and Student Progression Manual, available from policies.curtin.edu.au/policies/teachingandlearning.cfm

Late assessment policy

This ensures that the requirements for submission of assignments and other work to be assessed are fair, transparent, equitable, and that penalties are consistently applied.

1. All assessments students are required to submit will have a due date and time specified on this Unit Outline. 2. Students will be penalised by a deduction of ten percent per calendar day for a late assessment submission

(eg a mark equivalent to 10% of the total allocated for the assessment will be deducted from the marked value for every day that the assessment is late). This means that an assessment worth 20 marks will have two marks deducted per calendar day late. Hence if it was handed in three calendar days late and given a mark of 16/20, the student would receive 10/20. An assessment more than seven calendar days overdue will not be marked and will receive a mark of 0.

Additional information Students should receive marks, assignments and feedback as soon as practicable, to maximise their opportunity to improve their performance. Research consistently highlights the significant loss of impact to learning when feedback to student is delayed. Ideally, feedback to students for items other than a final examination will be provided under normal circumstances within 15 working days and no later than 20 working days. Further information on this can be found under section 7 in the assessment and student progression policy. http://policies.curtin.edu.au/findapolicy/docs/Assessment_and_Student_Progression_Manual.pdf
