Purpose: The aim of the study was to develop a vocabulary targeting communication of health-terms ofmovement quality, establishing professional knowledge of a movement terminology usefull withinrehabilitation.

Methods: A phenomenological study design was chosen, inviting movement experts working inrehabilitation to describe movement observations when a change into more functional, health relatedways of moving appeared in the rehabilitation processes. 15 physiotherapy experts were recruited,five from the field of neurology, primary health care and psychiatry. The informants had between12-38 years of clinical practice, treating patients of all ages with a wide specter of diagnoses. Datacollection followed a qualitative study design, of individual, in-depth interviews, based on a semi-structured interview guide. The interviews were taped, transcribed and sent to the informants forvalidation. Data analysis followed recommendation of Giorgi, modified by Malterud. Ethical considera-tions were followed.

Results: Data revealed a vocabulary, clustered in five themes, Biomechanical, Physiological, Psycho-socio-cultural, Existential and Overarching perspective, 16 underlying categories and 122 descriptive health-terms of movement quality.

Conclusion: The study demonstrated a multi-perspective movement vocabulary of 122 health characteris-tic terms, developed to facilitate movement communication within the broad field of rehabilitation. Theresult calls for further research concerning a movement vocabulary.
