2017 Content26.10.2017 Poster prize at the CRC RetreatCongratulations to Volker Ressel for winning one of the three best poster awards at the 7th FZK/CRC Retreat at the Seminarhotel Bocken in Horgen. His poster was entitled: "Diffusion Tensor Imaging to predict cognitive outcome in children with acquired brain lesion" and was authored by V. Ressel, C. Raselli, K. Birrer, R. O'Gorman Tuura and H. van Hedel. 25.03.2017 Symposium of Physiotherapia PaediatricaFor our research team, it is important to maintain the "relationship between research and clinical application". Accordingly, we were very happy we got invited to the yearly clinical symposium of the Swiss Physiotherapeutica Paediatrica (Association of Swiss Paediatric Physiotherapists) to present and discuss our physiotherapy-related research. Four of our team members presented scientific results from different fields: Petra Marsico presented her research on Neurodynamics, Julia Balzer talked about selective voluntary motor control of the legs, Judith Graser highlighted the importance of practice order for motor learning and Sandra Ricklin elaborated on dual task training within the Lokomat. We want to express our gratitude for the opportunity and look forward to an ongoing fruitful collaboration. This patchwork document allows for a glimpse on the presentations. 17.03.2017 Best talk award at CRPP meetingOn March 16. and 17., the International Symposium on Neuro-Rehabilitation: Strategies for Customized Treatments, took place in the Campus Hotel Hertenstein. Thereby, Judith Graser scored the second place of the Best Talk Award for her work "Tailored robot-assisted arm rehabilitation in children: the role of the practice order". 14.02.2017 Team expansionRecently, two new PhD students joined our Lab. Jeffrey Keller started his work in January and will work on the evaluation and training of selective voluntary motor control and Fabian Rast commenced his project in February, where he will investigate inertial measurement units to comprehensively evaluate motor function of children undergoing rehabilitation. We wish both of them a good start and a healthy stamina :-) 01.01.2017: Happy new year We wish all the readers of this News page a happy 2017 and want to take the opportunity to thank you for your interest. We furthermore want to express our gratitude to all participants of our research projects and to all our funding bodies, without whom we wouldn't be able to sustain such a great team and all the good work.
