12th Annual International Functional Electrical Stimulation Society
November 12th-14th
Shriners Hospitals for Children, Philadelphia PA

The purpose of the International Functional Electrical Stimulation
Society, Inc. (IFESS ), is to promote the
research, application, and understanding of electrical stimulation as it
is utilized in the field of medicine through meetings, tutorials,
publications, and the exchange of information. The annual IFESS
Conference is one of the major conduits by which the society carries out
its mission. The IFESS society also shares sessions at the annual
meeting with its sister society, the International Neuromodulation
Society (INS ).

The IFESS meeting this year will focus on "translational" concepts.
These include the translation of established electrical stimulation
tenets to rehabilitation practice, the initiation of basic science
studies motivated by practical rehabilitation needs, the identification
of new knowledge or technologies from other fields of study such as
robotics, that may translate effectively into the application of
electrical stimulation and the adaptation of existing technology or
paradigms to little-studied patient populations.
