Product Description

Review

"An invaluable reference." ( International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, March 2010)

From the Back Cover

Authored by members of the British Bobath Tutors Association, Bobath Concept: Theory and Clinical Practice in Neurological Rehabilitationis a practical illustrated guide that offers a detailed exploration of the theoretical underpinning and clinical interventions of the Bobath Concept.

The evolution of the Bobath concept is brilliantly captured in this volume. The recognition that the best inhibition may come from engaging the patient in normal activities is an example of the way one of the notions central to the original Bobath Concept has developed. In short, the Bobath Concept lies at the heart of an approach to neurorehabilitation that is ready to take advantage of the rapidly advancing understanding, coming from neuroscience, of brain function in, in particular, of the effects of and responses to damage, and the factors that may drive recovery. It is no coincidence that neuroplasticity figures so prominently in the pages that follow.

Emeritus Professor Raymond Tallis BM BCh BA FRCP FMedSci LittD DLitt FRSA

This book guides the reader through general principles to more specific application of neurophysiological principles and movement re–education in the recovery of important areas, including moving between sitting and standing, locomotion and recovery of upper limb function.

Format: Paperback
As an experienced stroke physio I was looked forward to reading this book.
What a disappointment!
It really is not up to modern standards and consistently fails to provide evidence for the effectiveness of Bobath methods. To me it reads as a description of a habit rather than an evidence based approach to rehabilitation.

I realise my comments are in stark contrast to the above but I'm relieved to find that Dr Margaret Mayston (president of ACPIN) concluded "it does not make the mark as a book about Bobath" "this book will do little to quell the critics; in fact it will no doubt give them more fuel for the fire" (Synapse spring 2010).

Furthermore Dr Amanda Connell made the following comments "reads as a philosophical treatise as opposed to an evidence based approach" "the use of research to support the discussion is limited and biased" "reflecting the authors views that, in places, contradicts research findings" "prescriptive in its approach with limited exploration of clinical reasoning" (Physiotherapy 2010 vol 96 1).
