F82 UCL Centre for Neurorehabilitation Walking Symposium

Description

We are delighted to announce the UCL Centre for Neurorehabilitation Walking Symposium on the 24th February 2022, 09.00 – 17.00 hours.

 

Why do we as humans walk? What are the benefits of being on two feet and therefore what is the impact of walking impairment on people with neurological conditions? We have brought together experts in the field to explore these questions and advances in technologies to assess and manage walking impairment.

 

The symposium will be a hybrid model with opportunity for delegates to attend in person (COVID permitting) or virtually. 

 

Topics and speakers:

Why we walk – Shane O’Mara,  Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

Neuroscience physiology of gait – TBC

Gait assessment – gait laboratory technologies – TBC

Biomechanics of gait – Adam Shortland, Kings College London, UK

Wearable devices, self-management and monitoring – Lisa Alcock

Devices technologies / exoskeletons / robotics – Herman Kingma

Pharmacological interventions – Francois Bethoux, Cleveland Clinic Ohio USA

Fear of falling – Toby Elmers

Functional gait disorders in people with LTNCs - Glen Nielson, St Georges, University of London

 

Hybrid model:
