A MOVING TARGET...NDT/EBP ?... COULD VICON MOTION CAPTURE HELP? PEDS Dr. Kathryn Bain / Freshwater Creek, Australia and Suzanne Davis Bombria, PT, C/NDT / Columbia, CT
The focus of this session, to be held over two lunchtimes, will be our use of Vicon Motion Capture as a secondary outcome pre & post measure together with Goal Attainment Scaling. Could Vicon be utilised towards potential quantitative validation of family requested, participation level, func- tional change following contemporary NDTA intervention?
n Explain why we chose Vicon Motion Capture as a secondary outcome measure and its advantages and limitations.
n Explore with us our Protocol for choosing the children for Vicon, and then applying and removing Vicon markers.
n Follow throughout at intervals during the presentation, how Vicon was able to measure a teenager’s improved cycling performance, towards her targeted summer Triathlon event.
n Integrate how Vicon Motion analysis can be paired with a Goal Attainment Scaling filming Protocol.
n Investigate and experience with us the data analysis phase. n View the preliminary results compared with the families’
participation daily task requests.
n Consider other related potential NDTA Contemporary Practice
ModelTM quantitative outcome measures such as ‘Datavu’. n Learn about the NDTA Research Committee’s role in supporting clinical research initiatives related to the
NDTA Contemporary Practice ModelTM.
