    Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands,
    Switzerland, Israel, USA, Canada, and across the UK, who will be
    presenting that the 1st Salford International Conference on

    BIOMECHANICS OF THE LOWER LIMB IN
    HEALTH, DISEASE AND REHABILITATION

    September 10-12th 2001
    University of Salford, England

    KEYNOTE PRESENTATIONS:
    Professor J J O ‘Connor - ‘Modelling knee and ankle replacement’.
    Dr Hermie Hermens- ‘European recommendations on measurement
    and processing of surface EMG’.
    James Robb - ‘The relevance of gait analysis to clinical practice’.
    Professor Ian Swain - ‘Functional Electrical Stimulation – from
    research into clinical practice’.

    ************************************************** ****************************
    This three day international conference will bring together
    researchers from the fields of bioengineering, gait analysis,
    prosthetics, orthotics, rehabilitation and clinical research, to create
    a unique forum for the dissemination and discussion of current
    research in this field.

    The conference programme is now available on line. Registration is
    now open and the early bird rate has been extended until June
    30th. Details of accommodation at the university are available at
    the conference web site, as is the registration form. Any queries
    should be directed to:

    KEYNOTE PRESENTERS
    Professor J J O ‘Connor - ‘Modelling knee and ankle replacement’.
    Professor J J O ‘Connor is Professor of Engineering Science and
    Director of the Oxford
    Orthopaedic Engineering Centre, University of Oxford, England. He
    has an international
    reputation for his pioneering research, and his interests include
    modelling of the knee and
    ankle, and the design of knee and ankle prostheses.

    Dr Hermie Hermens- ‘European recommendations on measurement
    and processing of surface EMG’.
    Dr Hermie Hermens is technical director of Roessingh Research
    and Development, a private
    research institute in The Netherlands, with strong links to the
    University of Twente and
    Roessingh Rehabilitation Centre. His main interests are in surface
    EMG and functional
    electrical stimulation. He participated in over 15 European projects
    in these areas. He
    co-ordinates the SENIAM project (Surface EMG for Non-Invasive
    Assessment of Muscles)
    focussed on the development of recommendations for surface EMG
    measurements and signal
    processing.

    James Robb - ‘The relevance of gait analysis to clinical practice’.
    James Robb is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Edinburgh
    and has a clinical and research
    interest in neuromuscular disorders in adults and children. He is
    currently Chairman of the
    European Society for Movement Analysis in Adults and Children
    and an Associate Editor for
    “Gait and Posture”.

    Professor Ian Swain - ‘Functional Electrical Stimulation – from
    research into clinical
    practice’.
    Professor Ian Swain is Professor of Clinical Engineering at
    Bournemouth University, England,
    and a Consultant Biomedical Engineer at Salisbury Hospital. He
    has extensive experience is
    functional electrical stimulation work, including innovative work in
    the development of the
    Odstock Drop Foot Stimulator and the integration of FES systems
    into clinical practice.

    University of Salford
    The University of Salford has over 20,000 graduate and post
    graduate students and a
    reputation for creative engagement with industry and consumers.
    The University is proud of
    its links with health care services throughout the UK and Europe
    and its high quality
    training of health care professionals. It is the home of the national
    centre for training in
    prosthetics and orthotics. Underpinning much of this work are its
    research activities which
    are centred around purpose built human movement and human
    performance laboratories based in
    the Brian Blatchford Building. These house two 3D motion analysis
    systems, 2 force plates,
    telemetry EMG analysis, two pressure plates, a Kin-Com
    Isokinetics machine, online gas
    analysis, treadmills and cycle ergometers. There is a strong focus
    on the biomechanics of
    the lower limb and underpinning improvements in health care with
    advances in our
    understanding of the lower limb and its rehabilitation.


    Delegate accommodation
    The University of Salford has a large selection of very reasonably
    priced accommodation
    available on its campus. Details of these are available on the
    conference web site
    http://www.healthcare.salford.ac.uk/biomechanics2001.
    Alternatively, the University of
    Salford is located close to Manchester city centre, which has a
    wide range of accommodation
    from small comfortable hotels to luxurious 5 star hotels.

    Exhibition.
    A commercial exhibition of products related to rehabilitation and
    the assessment of human
    performance will be open throughout the conference. All
    refreshments during the conference
    will be served in the exhibition hall.

    Salford and Manchester
    Salford and Manchester are adjacent cities just 1 mile apart in the
    North West of England.
    They are well served by Manchester Airport which has direct rail
    links to Manchester city
    centre and the University of Salford campus (Salford Crescent
    Station). If you choose
    accommodation in Manchester city centre there are excellent bus
    links for the short ride
    from the city centre to the University of Salford.
