Chance to learn computerised rehab

Nurses will be able to learn about the latest computerised rehabilitation techniques as part of a health informatics course run by a London university.

Nurses will be able to learn about the latest computerised rehabilitation techniques as part of a health informatics course run by a London university.

Students enrolled on University College London's MSc in Health Informatics course will now be able to do two modules on Sensing for Sport and Managed Exercise (SESAME), which uses body sensors and video data to improve training sessions.

Although focused on athletics, the SESAME technical approach is applicable to a wider range of training and health care scenarios. These include the rehabilitation of patients following surgery, stroke or injury, and support for people with physical disabilities.

A university spokesman said: 'Since the MSc course started, many nurses have used it to improve their knowledge of IT and technology in healthcare.'
