COURSE DESCRIPTION

 

Students will learn about research topics in aging studies including the principles of aging, aging research, methods of assessment of mobility, frailty and falls, and interventions to prevent mobility disability, frailty and falls.

 

TEACHING STRATEGIES

This class will incorporate reading assignments, lectures, off class assignments, group discussions, and off campus visits to facilitate student learning including older adult interviews.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES

At the completion of the course, students will be able to:

  1. Understand principles of aging research.
  2. Differentiate between normal age-related physiological changes and pathological manifestations of aging.
  3. Demonstrate understanding of current aging theories.
  4. Determine which assessment tools to use for mobility, balance, gait and strength assessments.
  5. Understand (describe and explain) the scientific basis of selected techniques for analysis of movement, including motion capture and surface electromyography, posturography, videography, and dynamometery.
  6. Evaluate the relative advantages and disadvantages of selected techniques for analysis of movement relative to specific clinical and/or research questions
  7. Determine appropriate interventions and exercise programs to the needs of older adults.
  8. Create and evaluate falls prevention programs.
