12th STAFFORDSHIRE CONFERENCE ON CLINICAL BIOMECHANICS, Stoke on Trent, UK, May 1 - 3, 2014

staffordshire-conference 2014 UK

We are pleased to announce the upcoming 12th Consecutive Conference on Clinical Biomechanics at Staffordshire University. The 3-day conference will be held at the University Campus, Stoke on Trent, from the 1st to the 3rd of May, 2014. It will provide a forum for information dissemination on lower limb clinical biomechanics and will facilitate discussion on research and case studies in this field via plenary sessions. 

In addition to lower limb biomechanics and footwear research, this year's conference will focus on biomechanics of the at risk foot (with a focus on Diabetes) on the first day and the musculoskeletal biomechanics of the lower limb and footwear on the second day. The keynote speakers will outline the latest developments in the area of pathomechanics and pathology of the foot at risk and highlight the role of technology in understanding biomechanical principles with a focus on diagnosis and management of patients.

One of the keynote speeches will be held by our dear old friend and colleague Dr Claudia Giacomozzi, a senior research scientist at the Department of Technology and Health (Section of Biomechanics and Rehabilitative Technologies) of the Italian National Institute of Health (ISS). There will be opportunities for debate and analysis of issues surrounding these topics.

novel will participate in the conference with a booth, and we will sponsor a preconference workshop on „Plantar Pressure Assessment“. The workshop will cover basic concepts in plantar pressure and ground reaction force measurements along with an introduction to the technologies used for plantar pressure assessment. Whilst providing an overview on regulatory issues, it will particularly focus on the applications of these technologies for use within a diabetic foot clinic. The workshop will be facilitated by Dr Claudia Giacomozzi and Gabriella Atzori.

We would be happy to welcome you at this conference providing plenty of opportunities to discuss our latest load distribution measurement technology.
