                  CURRENT PROJECTS

1. Educational Project

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.

OVERALL GOAL

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 =

INITIAL

  1. Developing competency in basic evaluation skills during practical.

INETERMEDIATE

  1. Develop competency in clinical evaluation skills during clinical training.

LONG TERM

  1. Enhance clinical competence of undergraduate Occupational Therapy students in clinical evaluation at Padmashree Dr.D.Y.Patil College of Occupational Therapy College.
 
Method =

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
                  different occupations.
