Luxembourg conference

This week I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend the WalkAide conference in Luxembourg.

There was a fantastic scope of professionals there from Physiotherapists to Orthotists and even Professors of Neurology!

The presentations themselves were incredibly informative and included up to date scientific research and case studies of patients from all over the world.

The speakers included representatives from the USA, UK, Germany and even Israel.

I had the chance to ask plenty of questions and to see first hand just how effective the WalkAide device can be and in which parameters it is best used.

It was interesting to see and hear the different responses other professionals were getting with the device and how they feel it works best with the children and adults that they treat.

I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to attend this conference and have learnt a huge amount about FES and how other professionals work.

If you think that you might be interested in FES and the WalkAide device or would like to learn more then there is a section on our website dedicated to this or feel free to contact us direct.
