Dr. Gad Alon
Workshop Description: ½ Day
The workshop will focus on: 1) identifying the specific locomotor deficits and recovery profiles that each patient presents, 2) providing examples of the diverse modes of actions (mechanisms) that govern FES and ESB utilization, 3) the latest developments and shortcoming of wearable FES and ESB technologies, and 4) the recognition that FES and ESB have limited value if applied in isolation. The workshop will focus on developing a personalized training paradigm, centered on individual patient’s needs and measureable progress in locomotion. It will highlight several, critical barriers to successful physical rehabilitation and identify few areas where 21st century wearable technology will play a critical role in removing these barriers. The workshop will include one session of Hand-ON practice with wearable FES and ESB systems.
At the end of the workshop the participants should be able to:
