The Bobath concept (IBITA) for patients with ZNS illnesses (CVA, Ataxia, Parkinson, ms etc.) is world-wide the best concept for a holistic therapeutic multidiscipline
IBITA means: international bobath instructor trainings association is an
International association for adult neurological rehabilitation (www.ibita.org).
The IBITA is responsible for the world-wide trainings quality of the Instructors.
The Bobath Concept is a problem solving approach to the assessment and treatment of individuals with disturbances of function, movement and postural control due to a lesion of the central nervous system. This approach to the rehabilitation of adults with central nervous system pathology originated in the work of Berta and Karel Bobath and has evolved over more than half a century.
The rationale for current practice is based upon present day knowledge of motor
control, motor learning and neural plasticity, as well as on knowledge of biomechanics.
Summarizing are the theoretical principles of the Bobath concept (IBITA) described in the following Items
The Organization of human behavior and motor control
The consequences of injury and dysfunction in the execution of movement
Recovery mechanism, neural and muscle plasticity, Motor Learning and control.
The total medical product of the recovery of the patient contents diagnostics, treatment and Rehabilitation.
This implies that an important part of the clinical work is a good therapeutic treatment which takes places by physiotherapist by in-patients and after discharge from hospital a subsequent treatment for out-patients.
With good evidence based rehabilitation, inclusive the process of the Clinical rea- soning, is the recovery progress by the patient with lesion in the central nervous sys- tem larger and also measurable.
So the content of the Bobath-Course will be based on the organization of treatment in the hospital and also in the homecare situation with both their special Problems, associated with the mindsets of the ICF (international classification of functioning and health) of the WHO (2001).
