Just a reminder that the abstract deadline for this IPEM organised meeting is
now approaching. Details are given below:

User group meeting - Clinical Applications of Foot Pressure Measurement
St Mary's Conference Centre, Sheffield
3rd February 2011

Foot pressure measurement systems are used within a number of clinical
applications. There are a range of commercially available products in use,
together with various in-house developed systems. However, outcome
measures and the role of quality assurance in ensuring reliability and
repeatability of data collection both within individual services and between
sites are not widely reported. The primary aim of the meeting will be to
examine current protocols and generate discussion regarding the potential for
both clinical and technological development of foot pressure measurement
systems.

This event will provide an opportunity for engineers, researchers and
practitioners to exchange ideas and present new results. The aim is to
encourage dialogue between professionals from different clinical backgrounds
in this area of research and practise.

Abstract submissions are invited from interested professionals in healthcare,
industry and academia. Presentations in all relevant areas and disciplines are
welcome including technical issues, new developments, clinical protocols and
innovative studies.

Please submit one-page abstracts (electronic versions preferred) by 8 October
2010 to:
