Gehen Verstehen Seminar report

The start of September at Schein was all about ‘Gehen Verstehen’ (understanding gait).

30 participants from the areas of OST, OT and PT attended the basic and advanced training course led by Kirsten Götz-Neumann, President of the O.G.I.G. (Observational Gait Instructor Group) and an expert in gait and movement analysis, from 2 to 5 September.

The content of the clearly presented course included the eight gait phases and the most common gait deviations, as well as their significance for the locomotor system as a whole.

Among the highlights of the course, which was characterised by theoretical as well as many practical exercises, were the demo patients who had been invited and were jointly analysed among the group of participants under the instruction of Kirsten Götz-Neumann and received practical assistance and helpful exercises there and then.

Due to the extremely positive feedback from participants and the course leader, the intention is to continue the series of seminars in future. All courses and contact partners for future dates are listed on the Schein seminar portal:
