Location: Massachusetts Biotechnology Council 300 Technology Square, 8th Floor

There is a growing awareness that legacy physiological readouts in preclinical animal models of movement disorders are not sufficient in describing the interplay between strength, balance, and coordination in ambulation of humans.  The diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ["Lou Gehrig's Disease"] in humans currently happens too late for a cure, yet animal studies are advancing our understanding of its pathogenesis that will hopefully lead to better and earlier diagnosis and treatment.  This workshop will enable researchers to demonstrate the DigiGait Imaging System, instrumentation for comprehensive motor function assessment in preclinical models of human disorders, including arthritis, Huntington's disease, and traumatic brain injury.....for anything that affects how you and I walk, there is an animal model.  DigiGait is the most widely published treadmill gait analysis system available - attend this workshop and learn why!

Current DigiGait Users: come learn the latest features and receive the latest DigiGait Analysis Software

Refreshments will be served.  Transportation to/from the Convention Center can be provided.

The registration for this event is $10.00.
