Improving performance of undergraduate Occupational Therapy students in evaluation of range of motion
and individual muscle testing on patients by using checklist during the practical.
To improve the clinical evaluation skills of undergraduate Occupational Therapy students
at Padmashree Dr.D.Y.Patil college of Occupational Therapy College, Nerul, Navi Mumbai
SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES =
- Developing competency in basic evaluation
skills during practical.
- Develop competency in clinical evaluation
skills during clinical training.
- Enhance clinical competence of undergraduate
Occupational Therapy students in clinical evaluation at Padmashree Dr.D.Y.Patil College of Occupational Therapy College.
One group of students will perform individual muscle testing and range of motion evaluation
without referring to checklist of procedural steps.
Number of students = 10
Cases for each students = 5
Total number of patients = 10*5 = 50
Other group will perform individual muscle
testing and range of motion evaluation by referring to checklist of procedural steps.
Number of students = 10
Cases for each students = 5
Total number of patients = 10*5 = 50
2.Dexterity Evaluation Instrument
Dexterity, defined as the skillful manipulation of the hands. Dexterity depends on powerful, distributed neural networks
and includes two concepts of speed and accuracy. It is therefore necessary to couple the two broad divisions of hand dexterity,
i.e. hand-object coupling and bimanual coordination with speed and accuracy for the purpose of evaluation. Thus skillful manipulation
of an object by hands often involves reach, grasp, carry, release, and in hand manipulation and bimanual coordination. In
addition, nails have significant contribution to the hand function or skill. Its contribution is obvious when one has nail
bed or fingertip injury or amputation of finger or thumb. Its importance is even noted when one trims nails recently-may be
uneasiness or temporary drop in function/limited use of hands for limited duration.
In brief, hands are remarkable for their deftness & in order to evaluate this quality of hand, Rivet & Eyelet
Deftness Test (RED Test) devised. It is non-verbal in nature that tests for both unilateral (Stage I through IV) & bimanual
tasks (Stage V through VII).
Preliminary study on 100 subjects was completed. On critical evaluation some modification were needed in the test.
With some modification, modified RED Test (modiRED Test) introduced.
1.To evaluate norms on the dexterous task (RED Test) of school & college
going students, who have not yet engage in formal occupation & study variation across the different age groups, occupations,
urban versus rural & some conditions like learning disability.
2. To analyze the factors involved in dexterous task.
PLACE OF THE STUDY
Study need to be done in different settings like college and school setting as well as the community setting for the
study of rural population. Also, visit to the industries will be necessary as there is need to study the dexterity across
