BMN for clinicians

Clinicians can use BMN as:

  • a recording tool for 'shop floor' assessment and reassessment
  • a research tool in conjunction with instrumentation methods, to record clinical findings, and
  • a teaching tool to provide systematic observation of movement for clinical analyses of both functional and dysfunctional movements.

See below for more information on how Benesh Movement Notation is used by clinicians.
