neuro15 motor control

Mobility: The ability to initiate movement through a functional range of motion.
Stability: The ability to maintain a position or posture through cocontraction and tonic holding around a joint. Unsupported sitting with midline control is an example of stability.
Controlled Mobility: The ability to move within a weight bearing position or rotate around a long axis. Activities in prone on elbows or weight shifting in quadruped are examples of controlled mobility.
Skill: The ability to consistently perform functional tasks and manipulate the environment with normal postural reflex mechanisms and balance reactions. Skill activities include ADLs and community locomotion.
Motor Control: A Task-Oriented Approach
motor control Charles Sherrington postulated the reflex theory of motor control. Motor control refers to the ability to produce, regulate, and alter mechanisms that produce movement and control posture.
The various theories of motor control are based on a specific interpretation of how the brain functions and interacts with other body systems.
A task-oriented approach to motor control utilizes a systems theory of motor control that views the entire body as a mechanical system with many interacting subsystems that all work cooperatively in managing internal and environmental influences.
The task-oriented approach utilizes an examination that consists of observation of functional performance, analysis of strategies used to accomplish tasks, and assessment of impairments.
Treatment attempts to resolve impairments, design and implement effective recovery and compensatory strategies, and retrain using functional activities
