SIG Mobility & Occupation meeting 2012, Milan (09/11 - 10/11 )

Dear SIG Mobility member,
Dear Colleague with an interest in mobility in MS,

The final program of the next SIG Mobility in-between meeting is available, and can be found in attachment together with the registration and abstract form. An overview of the meeting content and organization can be found HERE.

The theme of the 2-day meeting will be “The use of clinical approaches including advanced technology systems for maximizing the effect of rehabilitation on mobility and function”. Broadly, the meeting comprises three sessions: 1) a joint-session together with SIG Occupation focusing on upper limb function, 2) a one which will cover instrumented approaches in the evaluation and rehabilitation of gait and balance, and 3) free presentations providing clinicians and researchers an opportunity to share their latest findings and ideas concerning mobility and physical functioning in MS.

The meeting will take place at 9-10th November 2012. It will be organized by the Don Gnocchi Foundation in Milan, Italy with Johanna Jonsdottir and Davide Cattaneo serving as hosts.

Members of RIMS can freely attend the meeting. Accomodation for at least one night will be free, and one lunch as well as dinner will be offered by the local organisers.

So why wouldn’t you travel to Italy in November, and join us in this innovative, thought-provoking, and interactive meeting?!

With kind regards

Anders Romberg & Paul Van Asch, Chairmen of the SIG on Mobility group
Johanna Jonsdottir & Davide Cattaneo, local organisers
