CALL for PAPERS / ANNOUNCEMENT

AMSTERDAM, 7-9 December 1998
2nd International Workshop
BIOMEDICAL ASPECTS OF MANUAL WHEELCHAIR PROPULSION:
THE STATE OF THE ART II

(see also: http://www.fbw.vu.nl/events/wheelchair98/ )

This is the second Workshop on manual wheelchair propulsion organised by the
research group around "Ergonomics of manual wheelchair propulsion" in the
Netherlands. It intends to give an overview on the current fundamental,
clinical and applied research findings upon wheelchair propulsion, arm work,
wheelchair training and possible consequences of a wheelchair confined life
style.

This International Workshop is dedicated to the scientific knowledge base of
the physiology, biomedical engineering, rehabilitation, biomechanics and
ergonomics around manual wheelchair use, the wheelchair-user population and
alternative modes of ambulation.

The Workshop is a special occasion for both researchers, rehabilitation
engineers, medical practitioners, paramedical staff, provisioners,
wheelchair users and all those interested in the topics in the research
field of wheelchair armwork.

Deadline For Submission September 15, 1998

Allthough the Workshop will have a series of invited expert speakers there
will be opportunity to present your own research work in oral presentations
or through poster contributions. Those who are interested in presenting
their research work on manual wheelchairs, wheelchair propulsion and related
areas of interest are invited to send in a 3 page abstract (single space, 12
point), including title, authors, affiliation. All margins should be 2 cm.
The abstract should include a clear introduction with the research question,
followed by sections on methods, results, discussion and conclusion. Three
pages, also include figure(s), table(s) and references.

Registration Fee : $300,-
