  • IFKB symposium "Balance at all times"


    5th IFKB-symposium: 'BALANCE AT ALL TIMES'
    8 November 2001
    Cultuurcentrum Griffioen, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    This symposium will focus on the ability to stay upright in the face of a
    variety of disturbances over various timescales. Top scientists will give
    lectures on balance control in five different timescales from an
    evolutionary timescale to the here-and-now. The symposium will provide an
    overview of the ways in which balance problems are solved, viewed from
    various fundamental and clinical perspectives.


    Dr. B.M.G. van Engelen

    Phylogenetic timescale: The evolution of human balance
    Dr.E. Otten, The Netherlands

    Ontogenetic timescale: The emergence and deterioration of balance across the
    life span
    Prof. M.H. Woollacott, USA

    Long-term timescale: Compensatory postural strategies in patients with
    longstanding balance impairment
    Dr. B. Bloem, The Netherlands

    Short-term timescale: Postural consequences of abnormal sensory environments

    Dr. W. Bles, The Netherlands

    Here-and-Now timescale: The temporal structure of spontaneous postural sway
    Dr. M.A. Riley, USA

    During the lunch break a poster session will be held. This session will
    feature posters on subjects relevant to the symposium theme, as well as
    posters that will provide an impression of other research projects conducted
    by the IFKB.

    You are cordially invited to attend this symposium. More information about
    the symposium, poster presentation and registration can be found on
    Please note that early registration closes on October 20.

    With kind regards,
    The Symposium Committee
