The ISPGR World Congress brings together posture and gait researchers and clinicians from around the world for discussion and exchange of the most cutting edge knowledge, insights, issues and ideas. ISPGR holds biennial meetings around the world for basic and clinical scientists in order to:
Present and discuss the latest research and clinical findings relating to the control of posture and gait and related disorders
Facilitate interaction between members who meet from all corners of the globe
The Congress will take place at the HOTEL BONAVENTURE, a world class, centrally located venue perfectly suited to ISPGR’s needs.
Given the continuing uncertainty around travel restrictions and limitations as a result of COVID-19, ISPGR intend to organise a hybrid event, allowing people to present and attend either in-person in Montreal, or virtually. The Strategic Planning Committee, along with the 2022 Co-chairs, are exploring various options that can support this hybrid format, and more details will be available in due course.

University of Salford (UK)
Kristen Hollands is a Senior Research Fellow in the School of Health Sciences, University of Salford, Manchester UK. Her research focuses on understanding the causes of difficulties with mobility in older adults and people with neurological conditions and translating this understanding to the design of more effective rehabilitation treatments. Most recently her work has been exploring implementation of evidence based practice to promote mobility in care home settings. Her research interests thus span “bench to bedside” and she hopes to inspire curiosity around how we might better utilise the knowledge ISPGR community creates regarding mechanisms of gait, posture and balance control within clinical practices.
