The ISPO UK MS is working alongside the organising committees of TIPS2019 and BACPAR to develop a first-class programme of events for TIPS/ISPO/BACPAR 2019 which will run for four consecutive days (Wednesday 20 March - Saturday 23 March) at the fabulous Lowry, in Manchester.

The overarching theme of the conference is "Moving beyond the lab" and the programme will comprise a series of keynote and guest lectures, free paper presentations, poster exhibition and workshops. And as is customary at ISPO meetings, a commercial exhibition will run in tandem with the meeting offering delegates an opportunity to see the latest innovations in rehabilitation engineering and assistive technologies. Combined with a lively social programme, sponsored by our exhibitors, TIPS/ISPO/BACPAR 2019 promises to be a truly inspirational event for all professionals involved in rehabilitation medicine, research, practice, prosthetics, orthotics, engineering, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, neuroscience, assistive devices and technologies.
