We would like to bring to your attention that The European Society for Movement Analysis in Adults and Children (ESMAC) organises his annual gait course in Bologna, Italy. Details are below or can be found through http://www.esmac.org/ . There are still a limited number of places available.

Building on a tradition of well structured annual gait courses, this year's courses offer a unique opportunity by combining multidisciplinary expertise in the field of clinical gait analysis.

The three days Gait Course will introduce the concepts of clinical gait analysis to non-experienced or starting personnel. Concepts covered will include gait analysis terminology, measurement and processing techniques, as well as data interpretation. The course is delivered as a combination of Lectures and Small Group Workshops. Clinical case studies will provide an essential part of the teaching program.

The multidisciplinary Faculty consists of representatives of expert centres in the field of clinical movement analysis:
