  1. How did Rood feel about reflexes?
    Love 'em. Stressed the importance of them in relearning motor control.
  2. Rood's 4 basic principles
    • 1 - sensory input is necessary for normalizing tone and evoking desired muscle responses
    • 2 - "sensory motor control is developmentally based"
    • 3 - movement is purposeful (some motivation, involvement, is necessary if you want a pt to produce a normal response)
    • 4 - repetition is necessary for learning
  3. Rood's 2 sequences of dev which are interrelated and ongoing
    • 1 - vital functions
    • 2 - skeletal functions
  4. Rood's vital functions
    • inspiration
    • expiration (coughing, crying)
    • sucking
    • swallowing
    • phonation
    • speach (comes later, regarded s a skill)
  5. Rood's 4 levels of skeletal functions
    • mobility
    • stability
    • controlled mobility
    • skill

    • flopping
    • being able to keep your head on straight
    • walking
    • fiddling
  6. ontogenetic def

    its rel to Rood
    normal dev in an individual or organism

    she id'ed 8 ontogenetic motor sequential patterns within her designated skeletal functions (mobility, stability, controlled mobility, skill)
  7. Rood's 8 ontogenetic motor patterns
    • supine withdrawal
    • segmental rolling
    • pivot prone (prone extesnion)
    • neck co-contraction (quadruped_
    • supporting self on elbows (prone on elbows)
    • all fours movement patterns
    • standing
    • walking
  8. Rood's mobililty ontogenetic motor patterns
    • withdrawal
    • rolling
    • pivot prone (also under stability)
  9. Rood's stability ontogenetic motor patterns
    • pivot prone (it's also under mobility)
    • prone on elbows (holding contractions in this pos. is important for developing proximal stability)
    • quadruped (goal: co-contraction of neck muscles that'll contribute to stability)
  10. point of pivot-prone
    • it's a pre-req for all WB patterns
    • major postural muscles are activated in shortened pos.
  11. Rood's controlled mobility ontogenetic motor patterns
    • wt shifting on elbows
    • wt shifting in quadruped
    • wt shifting shile stnading
    • trunk motion on fixed LEs

    Rood called this the "heavy work"
  12. Rood's skilled bits
    • distal part of extremity is free from supporting surface
    • proximal parts of UE will show more preciion in contral than distal parts
    • prox to distal dev
  13. Rood's skilled patterns
    • head movements
    • walking on elbows
  14. Rood's facilitation techniques
    • light stroking
    • brushing
    • quick icing
    • joint compression
  15. Rood's inhibitory techniques
    • joint approximation
    • light compression
    • neutral warmth
    • pressure on tendon insertion
    • slow rhytmic movement
  16. Rood on positioning
    • says it's a primary concern, esp when there's little vol. control
    • uses mats, bolsters, balls, etc.

    she's a fan of putting movement patterns into games like tug of war to add a fun focus
