  • Conference:TRANSITIONS IN GAIT & POSTURE,Teachers College,Columbia University

    Dear Colleague,
    You are invited to the 28th Annual Conference in Movement Sciences
    at Teachers College, Columbia University on April 22-23, 2005. The
    conference is designed for clinicians, movement scientists, and
    rehabilitation specialists. This yearís event focuses on the
    neuromechanical control and biomechanics of functional whole-body
    movement tasks such as gait initiation, locomotion, obstacle
    crossing, and sit-to-stand.
    Nationally and internationally recognized investigators will present
    their research and provide insight into prescribing rehabilitation
    strategies designed to improve performance during these
    destabilizing tasks. In addition, current applications and
    strategies in clinical gait analysis will be presented. This
    conference provides continuing professional preparation for
    occupational and physical therapist, exercise physiologists,
    physicians, and movement scientists.
