Event description
We cordially invite you to join us for the launch of our newly formed 108 SEM clinic as we unveil the KneeKG by Emovi.

About this Event

The KneeKG system is the first in-clinic device to measure knee function during gait with objective and quantifiable data associated with mechanical markers and functional deficiencies of the knee.

The evening will feature presentations from leaders in Healthcare and from Industry, elaborating the benefits of using the KneeKG system for both you and your patients.

 In addition, special celebrity guest speaker and Olympic Gold Medalist in track and field, Bruny Surin, will discuss his personal experiences with knee pain and how assessments via the KneeKG system helped him to overcome his pain.

Building a Performance Rehabilitation Culture: It’s a matter of Philosophy

The importance of developing a philosophy for rehabilitation: the ‘WHY’ of the patient’s journey.

Modelling Performance Rehabilitation: Built to last:

The key agents of efficacious rehabilitation needed to build Robust Injury Resilient Athletes:

• The importance of a multimodal approach

• Defining the physiological and psychological variables

Integrating the Fundamental Principles of Strength & Conditioning

Concentrating on the principles of Specificity and Progressive Overload to ensure that athletes can tolerate the most demanding physiological and psychological scenarios on their return to function.

A Corrective Movement Approach: Neuromuscular Acquisition

Introduction of

• Movement Preferences

• Proprioception

• Single Leg Efficiency

• Corrective Movement Program

Core Conditioning: The Missing Kinetic Chain

The importance of core conditioning and how to utilise the kinetic chain to reduce the risk of future injury and improve athletic performance.

Gamification: Engaging your Patient

Why rehab can no longer be transactional and that instead it must be engaging, fun, demanding, interesting and at the edge of their capability.

Rehabilitation to Reconditioning: A Systems Approach

Identifying Energy Systems needed to develop injury resilient robust athletes.

• Rehab to Threshold

• Rehab to Speed

• Rehab to Industry

Running: The Creative March

Transitioning a patient back to running is a very challenging task. Running is a high impact, high intensity hazardous activity. In this section we will discuss strategies to transition a person quickly and safely back to running.

Reconceptualising Rehab: A lifestyle Approach

In this section we will discuss how sleep, exercise, nutrition and stress can affect healing timeframes, injury risk and athletic performance.

Measuring Success

In this section we will discuss what variables we measure throughout the rehabilitation journey. We will discuss how to profile a patient and benchmark their improvements in relation to their goals.
