The NDT / Bobath Method

What is Neurodevelopmental Therapy?

The Bobath concept continues to evolve based on the evidence emerging through new theories, models, research and information in the movement science. The individual’s abilities and impairments are identified and addressed in relation to participation in functional activities. The Bobath/NDT concept offers a hands-on, problem-solving approach with interventions involving handling and guidance of movement to optimise function.
