The main topic is ‘Treatment of balance and gait in MS’, we are pleased that already some experienced clinicians and researchers have engaged themselves to present their work and opinions. Naturally, as always, you can also propose yourself to present relevant work within or outside the main topic.

The meeting is organized by the ‘Hospital de dia’ in Barcelona, Spain with Carmen Santoyo as local organizer, and will take place at 30/9 and 1/10.

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
  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.
