Dear Colleague,
You are invited to the 28th Annual Conference in Movement Sciences
at Teachers College, Columbia University on April 22-23, 2005. The
conference is designed for clinicians, movement scientists, and
rehabilitation specialists. This yearís event focuses on the
neuromechanical control and biomechanics of functional whole-body
movement tasks such as gait initiation, locomotion, obstacle
crossing, and sit-to-stand.
Nationally and internationally recognized investigators will present
their research and provide insight into prescribing rehabilitation
strategies designed to improve performance during these
destabilizing tasks. In addition, current applications and
strategies in clinical gait analysis will be presented. This
conference provides continuing professional preparation for
occupational and physical therapist, exercise physiologists,
physicians, and movement scientists.
