ESMAC 2022 DUBLIN

19 – 24 September 2022 Dublin, Ireland

GAIT COURSE

19 – 21 September 2022 

The registration for the 2022 ESMAC Gait Course is open! After a successful online Advanced Gait Course in 2021 we will go back to the roots for this year in-person course in Dublin.

The ESMAC Gait Course in Dublin is a three-day course divided into an introduction to gait analysis, normal gait vs. pathological gait, case examples and principles of data interpretation. The first day highlights requirements of healthy walking as well as changes in gait pattern with age. On the second day, more detailed aspects of gait analysis (kinematics, kinetics, EMG, quality insurance) are covered in theoretical courses as well as in practical sessions. The third and final day includes methods of integrating and communicating gait analysis data as well as discussing case examples in small groups. The case discussions will each be facilitated by experienced gait analysts with complementary skillsets (clinical/technical).

See the ESMAC Teaching Faculty

See the Gait Course Programme below


The ESMAC Gait Course will be held in the Croke Park (the ESMAC 2022 conference venue)
Croke Park, Jones Road, Dublin 3.

There will indeed be coffee and lunch breaks for participants of the Gait Course to connect and catch up.

Ahead of the course, you will get a handout with the slides as well as two interactive apps/programs to help understand joint moments and transverse plane bony deformities of the cases.

Make sure you register soon as the number of places is limited.

See you in September!
