Movement Screen: Screen and Assess for Movement Capacity and Injury Risk

cexa logo

MovementScreen is a unique application designed to screen and assess movement capacity. This app is designed for use by exercise physiologists, fitness professionals, Strength & Conditioning coaches, physiotherapists, chiropractors and other movement professionals.

The MovementScreen system is designed to capture the important information for the health and fitness professional to ensure safe exercise prescription for their clients.

It includes a well validated Physical Activity Questionnaire, to get an understanding of current activity patterns; a health screening tool (APSS), to screen for any signs and symptoms of chronic diseases; the World Health Organisation Disability Assessment Score (WHO DAS), to get an understanding of your clients’ current physical limitations; a postural analysis to look for any asymmetries in standing posture; and finally a comprehensive screen of nine common movements designed to identify any potential risks in performing these as part of an exercise program.

The Movement Screening System then analyses these data to give you user friendly reports on:

  • your clients overall risk profile, highlighting joints that are more at risk;
  • your clients’ movement score for each of the nine movements to identify which ones may be contributing to your clients injury risk;
  • your clients’ capacities in the key areas of strength, mobility, stability, symmetry and balance
  • which joints require these particular capacities including suggestions on exercises that may help improve these capacities.

This workshop will equip you as an exercise and movement professional to:

  • Understand the value and process of movement screening and assessment. The practical component of this workshop will teach you how to systematically screen for movement quality.
  • Further assessments and corrective exercise strategies are taught in our Upper Body Function; and Lower Body Function workshops.

This is of utmost importance, not only due to its legal implications as a professional, but due to the well documented adaptations to ‘normal’ movement that occur due to prior injury and general client/patient history.

Ignoring such adaptations in the prescription of exercise programs can lead to decrease of the benefit of such exercise, and to the increase risk of future injury.

You will gain specific skills in

  • systematically screening a client’s movement capacity and quality
  • understanding how this can be directly related to past and present injury;
  • a strategy to chose further assessments to get to the source of the dysfunction
  • Using a paper based or electronic screening system

It is recommended (if possible, although certainly not essential) that you download and bring the software application MovementsScreen with you, which can be freely downloadable here

This workshop is suitable for personal trainers (Cert 4 and above), exercise scientists, Accredited Exercise Physiologists, S&C coaches, and massage and physical therapists.
