Course Content: 

This course focuses on the scientific background, a variety of reliable and evidence-based tests for: 

  • Injury prevention: Contains up-to-date and evidence-based information on injury prevention screening and injury risk profiling for athletes and injuries from different disciplines.

  • Rehabilitation: Return to Sports screening after injury or surgery.

The training is recommended for all professionals who want to use practical tests in clinical applications or scientific studies. With this training, participants will be taught a large number of valid and reliable tests. In this way, it will be safer and faster for patients or athletes to return to their daily life activities or sports with theoretical knowledge, applied tests and screening skills. These scans are available for patients as well as professional or recreational athletes.

The training also includes an online platform (Hylyght) that supports and strengthens the work of people working in physiotherapy practice areas, hospitals and professional sports clubs. Participants of the course will be able to experience the platform, refresh their knowledge on testing and scanning, and learn the standardization of applications through the software, without the obligation to purchase any license.
