Welcome to Muscular Dystrophy UK's OPEN-TACT


OPEN-TACT is an online physiotherapy e-learning resource designed for specialist neuromuscular and community-based physiotherapists who want to learn more about assessing and managing neuromuscular conditions.

You'll also find a Virtual clinic where you can learn how to carry out the North Star Ambulatory Assessment (NSAA) for boys and young men with Duchenne.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USING VIRTUAL CLINIC: Your performance results within the Virtual clinic will be accessible by the Virtual Clinic Monitor. By signing up to OPEN TACT and accessing the Virtual clinic you agree to this oversight. The results of your performance will not be shared with third parties unless you give seperate permission. This applies to physiotherapists who contribute data to the UK Nataional network databases (Such as North Star) and should not influence your decision to make good use of the Virtual clinic for your own learning. Oversight also allows us to adjust errors and update user scores if required as video footage does not always allow for a black and white answer
