Meeting Theme

Clinical evidence and the interaction between human body and technology

Measurement technology in movement analysis helps us to understand the underlying pathology of various diseases and/or musculoskeletal conditions. During the meeting motion analysis as a diagnostic tool and outcome measure on the effect of physical exercise and surgery will be addressed.

Following an advanced gait course focused on the interpretation of gait analysis results in a clinical context, advanced and novel theories on ‘walk-to-run transition, ‘gait variability’, and ‘patient specific biomechanical models’ and their potential clinical application will be covered in the pre-conference seminars.

Furthermore, a ‘hands-on’ seminar on the interaction between human body and technology is planned where application on available technology and application in research and clinic will be discussed.

The conference will cover topics related to the above meeting theme and we encourage participants to submit abstracts related to these topics. We plan to include special oral and poster sessions at the main conference focusing on ‘clinical evidence’, ‘robotics and welfare technology’, ‘evaluating activity and participation in everyday life’, ‘subject/patient specific biomechanical models’
