Our programme provides information and intervention for parents and carers and our courses and training workshops are tailored to provide health practitioners and clinicians with the necessary skills and training to identify signs of neuromotor immaturity in children presenting with a range of specific learning difficulties and behavioural problems. Our one day course for teachers provides both a screening and intervention programme which can be rolled out in schools as a class based activity. These screening protocols and intervention programme are already being used successfully worldwide.
The H-reflex is similar to the stretch reflex (knee jerk reflex), but differs in that it bypasses the muscle spindle and is used to assess monosynaptic reflex activity in the spinal cord. Electrical stimulation causing the H-reflex measures the efficacy of synaptic transmission as the stimulus travels along the Ia fibers, through the dorsal root ganglion, and is transmitted across the central synapse to the anterior horn cell, which fires it down along the alpha motor axon to the muscle. This measurement can be used to assess the response of the nervous system to various neurologic conditions, musculoskeletal injuries, application of therapeutic modalities, pain, exercise training, and performance of motor tasks.
