6th International Symposium on Gait and Balance in Multiple Sclerosis

Sensory contributions to gait and balance in MS

This symposium is intended for physicians (neurologists, physiatrists), physical therapists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation scientists, nurses, and physician assistants working in the area of multiple sclerosis clinical practice or research. It focuses on how inputs from the visual, vestibular and somatosensory systems influence gait and balance in people with multiple sclerosis. The morning session will examine the contributions of these sensory systems to gait and balance and specifically the impact of each sensory system on people with multiple sclerosis. The afternoon sessions will focus on current evidence-based interventions that use sensory system input to improve mobility and balance in people with MS. In addition, the impact of multimodal sensory inputs provided by virtual reality will be explored. The goal is to discuss and disseminate information and develop collaborations to advance research and patient care related to gait and balance dysfunction in people with multiple sclerosis.

The symposium is organised in partnership with OHSU Multiple Sclerosis Center and VA Portland Health Care System, MS Center of Excellence West.
