Workshop - Annette Booiman, PT

The Advantage of EMG by Movement Corrections
Annette Booiman, PT
1-day Workshop

In this workshop, we will explore the use of practical exercises for daily life and what the changes will be in the EMG recordings when these simple daily activities are execute well. The workshop will be partly theoretical and partly practical and focus on a good posture and effective muscle functioning combined with breathing techniques. The participants will practice the techniques by themselves during the workshop and learn how to implement the exercises into their own or their clients everyday life. The EMG or other biofeedback signals will guide the activities and give more information about the advantages of a good posture and movements, exercises and attention.
