Congress program 2015

Congress on the Topic "What moves us"

Under the slogan "What moves us", the congress picks up on trade-related, scientific and political topics. The call for abstracts also leaves room for free topics.

Locomotion and mobility are central topics of orthopedic shoe technology. Not only the motion sequences of customers and patients are relevant, also developments within the trade, in politics or even on an international level will be addressed.

Some of the central issue of the congress 2015 are:

  • What moves us, when we move?
  • How do the stimuli that we take in through our feet continue in our body?
  • What is the industry dealing with at the moment?
  • What changes are looming internationally?

Apart from background information, also practical treatments will not miss out on the congress program. After all the congress in  Cologne is the most important meeting point for the health professions of orthopedic shoe technology.
