2014 Reconstructive Tetraplegia Hand Surgery Course in Nottwil/Basel - Now Open also for Therapists

Reconstructive Tetraplegia Hand Surgery and Rehabilitation, 23-26 April, 2014, Nottwil and Basel, Switzerland
This 3-days course under guidance of Prof. Jan Fridén will provide state-of-the-art knowledge on surgical reconstruction of upper extremity functions in persons with spinal cord injuries and tetraplegia.  Our aim is to provide a science-based and reliable toolbox of operative procedures for hand surgeons. For the first time we are also inviting therapists to attend and learn fundamentals and guidelines in assessments, training protocols, splinting and, most importantly, share experiences and ideas with each other.
Emphasis is on practical training. Therefore, for surgeons, one day in the anatomy laboratory is dedicated to hands-on-training of the most important tendon and nerve transfer procedures. For therapists, the same day will be focused on practice of splinting and motor relearning.
