From the beginning, in the Degree in International Physiotherapy in the School of New Interactive Technologies (ENTI-UB) and the University of Health and Sport (EUSES-UdG) at the Campus in Barcelona, you will learn how to develop and apply new technological advances. You will even create your own technological apps, adding quality to the care service. Moreover, this course is taught in English, an essential language to help you enter the labour market.
Having an in-depth knowledge on new technologies applied to the health care sector is absolutely relevant for all physiotherapists when working. Undoubtedly, new ICT are fundamental in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of an injury, granting a higher adherence to treatment by the patient.
Nowadays, the centres that are specialized in physiotherapy are equipped with technological devices such as electromyography devices, biomechanical sensors, force plates, instrumented treadmills, pressure platforms, pressure insoles, motion capture systems, cardiopulmonary analysis systems, motion capture based on optical technology, thermography, etc. Undoubtedly, the current technology is more than obvious in the health care field and its popularity is increasing.
However, the Degree in International Physiotherapy goes beyond the purely medical technological, sharing resources with other disciplines such as architecture (three-dimensional reconstruction studies using laser technology, which serve as an aid in the treatment of spine deformities such as scoliosis) or the video games or “serious games” (the use of the Wii Fit Platform, the gaming platform for Wii video game console).
Therefore, as a EUSES-ENTI student, you won’t become a mere user of new technologies but you will be granted an in-depth knowledge on them and you will know where to resource to to create relevant technological elements.
You will become a professional of an international nature, due to the added value of the course being taught in English. You will ultimately become a new professional, who will add quality to the care service while being able to create new resources.
