Also high on the agenda are brain stimulation, diagnostics and mental health; with organisers expecting around 3,500 neurologists, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, clinicians, rehab specialists and hospital trust representatives to attend.

The convention, at the NEC, is billed as the only trade show in Europe for brain and spinal experts and will feature over 200 exhibitors. Among them will be those offering new and emerging approaches to rehabilitation, with a range of innovative product and services firms.

The CPD-accredited seminar line-up, meanwhile, brings together a number of experts who aim to push the boundaries of rehab and recovery.

Seminar topics will cover the integration of new technology into neuro services and updates on the latest research in the field.
Dr Yaara Erez, of the University of Cambridge, will be discussing the mapping of the mind during awake surgery – and how that could shape future treatments.

Dr Michael Grey, a global voice on neuroplasticity and neuro-rehab generally, will be presenting on the power of virtual reality in rehab.

Other presentation topics include neuropathic pain in spinal cord injury, impulsivity and brain injury rehab and using digitalisation and clinical data to inform service development in brain injury care.

Also being discussed will be the development of eccentric controls in clients with CNS dysfunction and multi- channel FES for foot drop and knee control.

Speakers will also share insights on child brain injury, molecular science in relation to neuro- degenerative disease, physical impairments after brain injury and neuro-rehab technology. Meanwhile, the University of Plymouth will be running a series of interactive workshops with a focus on neuro-rehab. Topics covered include vestibular dysfunction in MS, balance and falls in neurological conditions and the potential value of exercise in Parkinson’s.

An introduction to the physiology and pathophysiology of eye movements will also be delivered.

These will be hosted by professionally registered academic professionals currently working at what is considered one of the most cutting-edge research facilities in the UK. There are also additional master classes hosted by orthopaedic device manufacturer, Thuasne.

will cover design, materials, and prescription of orthopaedic devices. These sessions must be booked in advance and are CPD accredited.

The European Neuro Convention runs alongside the European Oncology Convention, as well as the Medical Imaging Convention.
