The very latest knowledge and research will be presented by experts in the field through lectures, case studies, and demonstrations.

  • How mobility and cognition impact each other
  • Rehabilitation strategies for dealing with cognitive impairment
  • Integration of cognitive processes in mobility rehabilitation
