Description

This occupational therapy manual instructs students in the use of assessment tools when evaluating the range of motion and strength of clients, yet emphasizes the time efficiency required in today's healthcare environment. Students learn to screen clients for strength and motion deficits using functional observation and to formulate appropriate intervention plans through gross manual muscle assessment. Students also receive instruction in methods of isolated manual muscle testing and when it is appropriate to progress to this specific assessment.
