What can we measure and how is it clinically important?
This workshop will explore new and existing technologies that are being used, or have the potential for use for clinical applications related to lower limb biomechanical assessment. With live interactive workshops to show the technology in action and with a key note introduction and facilitation by Professor Jim Richards, Professor in Biomechanics, University of Central Lancashire.
