Department of Clinical Rehabilitation

The department educates and manages the Physiotherapy study program at the undergraduate and graduate level. The scientific research of the academic staff includes the clinical and instrumental objectification of movement function and dysfunction as well as the quantitative interpretation of physiotherapy methods.

Examples include the projects of the Student Grant Competition (IGA UP - Internal Grant Agency UP) such as Modified Sensory Input Objectification in Clinical Rehabilitation, Objectification of the Use of Purpose-Focused Movement, Observation, Movement Imagination in Rehabilitation, and Muscle Synergy Objectification in Upper Limb Ideo-Motoric Function.

Kinesiology Laboratory
The department together with the Rehabilitation Ward of the University Hospital Olomouc possesses motor function analysis equipment which is absolutely unique in the Czech Republic. The kinesiology lab has the dynamic posturography system Noraxon and surface electromyography systems (MyoSystem 1400 and TeleMyo). A recent addition to the measuring technology is treadmills with built-in force plate C-Mill and Zebris, which enable the objectification of walk cycle evaluation, walking speed measurement, step length, forces during walking and walking over obstacles with simulated video feedback. EMG compatible video cameras for synchronized EMG signal and image are used for graphic presentation and easier results interpretation in the studies performed by researchers and students. The highly specialized technical equipment of the kinesiology lab is among the best technology in the Czech Republic; it offers unique practical experience to students and researchers to work with a wide spectrum of objectification measures and to use them for motor function analysis in a practical setting.

The center is a service facility of the Faculty of Health Sciences. It unites the teaching staff and professionals in pre-clinical, theoretical, and clinical fields that guarantee the education of all study programs at Faculty of Health Sciences. The research activities of the staff are based on their professional field.
