On Wednesday, September 25, we will organise two seminars led by world-renowned experts, aiming to further discover the depth of the issue and open up new horizons to listeners.
Together, these two seminars form the core of the Dutch/Flemish SMALLL congress 2019, but the seminars are open to everyone interested.
This seminar will deal with current theoretical models and practical applications in gait training. In the first part, theoretical concepts in motor learning will explained, dealing with the role of instruction, feedback, variation and adaptation. In the second part different ways to exploit current technology to augment motor learning in gait training are presented, such as virtual or augmented reality, robotic gait training, and myo-electric control.
This seminar aims to provide a theoretical basis for novel technological advances in gait training and provide evidence current experiences and evidence for the efficacy of such gait training methods.
Panel discussion led by Jaap Harlaar
This seminar focuses on bridging the gap between the raw outcome of gait analysis (gait graphs, physical exam data, etc.) and treatment decision making.
How do different clinical centres approach this interpretation process? Can we make this process more standardized and objective? Should we focus on biophysical reasoning or should we learn from the past using statistical algorithms?
Date: Wednesday, September 25
Venue: De Meervaart Theatre, Amsterdam
In 2019, SMALLL, the Dutch/Flemish Society for Movement Analysis Laboratories in the Low Lands celebrates its 20th anniversary. For this reason, the annual SMALLL congress will be combined with the ESMAC preconference, to celebrate the SMALLL birthday together with international friends and colleagues in an inspiring environment.
During this SMALLL congress the annual SMALLL student award is handed out.
Graduates from Dutch institutes who performed research in the field of movement analysis and handed in their thesis, can apply for this award and will have the chance to present their work at the SMALLL annual congress. Find more information at smalll.eu/award
