This year's meeting focuses on advances in technology to accurately assess and treat gait and balance impairment in people with multiple sclerosis. Specifically, this year's symposium will detail current knowledge regarding the use of cutting-edge technology to enhance both laboratory and clinical analysis techniques. Additionally, this meeting will detail novel intervention approaches for gait and balance impairment in people with MS, providing insight for healthcare professionals who serve them, as well as scientists and those involved in MS advocacy, to improve the quality of life of people living with MS.

Who should attend

Multiple sclerosis clinicians or researchers, including physicians (neurologists, physiatrists), physical therapists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation scientists, nurses, physician assistants, and others in the field of gait and balance.

Learning objectives

  • Describe technologically-based approaches to monitor the quality and quantity of gait and balance dysfunction in MS
  • Detail the underlying neural mechanisms contributing to gait and balance dysfunction in MS
  • Understand how to utilize advances in technology to treat gait and balance in people with MS
  • Apply intervention approaches utilizing cutting-edge technology (both high and low fidelity) to optimize gait and balance in MS
