Delegates were greeted by an excellent array of speakers from diverse backgrounds and were also joined by Bill Galway, director for International Business Development at Biodex USA, giving them the chance to have a preview of future technology upcoming to the Isokinetic world.

John Milroy, managing director of IPRS Mediquipe said: “As a Suffolk business with national reach, we were delighted that some of our Biodex users from all stretches of the United Kingdom and Ireland were able to join us on this exceptional clinically educational day. A thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating day, gaining insights from the experts using the equipment for assessment, treatment or research on a daily basis. We run these annual events in order to get like-minded experts together to share their experiences and research from different areas of the medical genre feeding it through to each other and passing on knowledge to other interested clinicians.

Dave Fevre, sports science specialist said: “I enjoyed it as always. It must have been a good day as I received an email from the doctor at Derby, who used to be at Blackburn Rovers with me, saying how good a day it was - from what he had been told by various delegates who came; Good lecturers, good organisation and good company – what more can you ask for?”
