First experiences from clinical routine in neurorehabilitation with microprocessor swing and stand phase controlled knee-ankle-foot orthosis: What clinical best practice can be shared so far?

Get in touch with clinical experts and their first experiences in clinical routine. I Virtual Symposium for Healthcare Professionals I Language: English

Tuesday October 18, 2022 I 16:00 – 17:30 CET (Berlin Time)

In the neurorehabilitation of distal limb paresis currently a paradigm shift started due to the availability of the first microprocessor controlled stance and swing phase knee-ankle-foot orthosis. This also means that the focus of interest is on the first experiences and data and outcome assessment in clinical routine.

In this afternoon symposium we will devote ourselves to the outcome measures of a microprocessor controlled stance and swing phase knee-ankle-foot orthosis in neurorehabilitation in clinical routine.

Join us to enjoy the insights presented by clinical and research experts.
