A large body of research indicates that bike set up and peddling techniques can both significantly improve cycling performance and minimise the risk of repetitive strain injuries. It is important with any adjustments made to bike geometry can be accommodated within the rider's musculoskeletal abilities.This workshop is designed to educate participants on the ideal bike set up geometry and how to adjust this geometry to the individual needs of the rider. A comprehensive cycling specific screening to identify problem regions will be outlined. Such a screening can be used to determine if the cyclist would benefit from biomechanical or muscle control treatment to optimise rider-bike dynamic function.
Presented by the Senior Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapists and Clinical Educators from Royal North Shore Hospital and Macquarie University Hospital, this interactive evening lecture with a panel discussion will cover a series of complex case studies in post-surgical and intensive care settings. Airway and ventilatory management, escalation of care, and common clinical conundrums encountered by first year graduates will be discussed by the panel.
This session will present an indepth case presentation illustrating the physiotherapy and multi-disciplinary team management of a client following subarachnoid hemorrhage, with some big hurdles to get over from hospital admission through rehabilitation.
