The Therapy Expo team has expanded the 2017 Demo Zones to bring delegates even more opportunities to hone their skills and learn about new techniques
Therapy Expo Delegates will be guided through best practice on how to prepare the tape for application, how to safely and effectively apply it to the lumbar spine, shoulder and knee. Kinesiology taping is important because it allows a practitioner to interfere with the pain signals sent to the brain. It can be used to decompress an area of swelling, distribute physical stress, normalize muscle tone and even delay fatigue.”
Delegates will be able to see Exoskeletons up close and first hand, seeing full demos of the systems in a controlled environment. Clinical studies have shown that standing and ambulation in exoskeleton suits can provide health benefits, such as: more natural alignments, improved bowel and bladder function, improved sleep & reduced fatigue, decreased body fat and most importantly decreased Pain.
Movement patterning following sports injury
The Demo Zone offers a unique chance to experience one of the most important tools used for rehabilitation and movement
performance, Dynamic Movement Skills (DMS). Demonstrations will cover an introduction to DMS as a rehabilitation and performance tool for health practitioners, followed by a chance to experience this movement re-patterning method in a practical demonstration.
Running assessment demonstrations
Get updated on the latest assessment techniques, learn what you should be looking for and best practise to apply in your day to day assessments. The aim of this presentation is to take a look at how established rehabilitation concepts such as progressive loading and functional movement patterns are vital not only for re-establishing tissue capacity but also and maybe more importantly for restoring overall system tolerance.
