REGISTER NOW for the full three-part In Focus Research Series on ‘Resilience and Adaptation in Rehabilitation’
Hear from health practitioners, clinicians, people with lived experience, researchers and industry experts about the impact of pandemic events during 2020 on rehabilitation systems, services, connections and community. Each session will showcase a different perspective on disruption and adaptation in rehabilitation and designing resilient systems and responsive services, advancing technology, creating adaptive practices and interventions for the future.
Practitioner perspectives on system and service disruption
In this first research session, we will hear practitioners' perspectives on system and service disruption across the continuum of care. This session will highlight the experiences and ideas about how technology can solve problems and accelerate positive change in the delivery and design of rehabilitation.
This is a FREE event for everyone and we invite you to register attend this virtual In Focus Research Series session and hear more about Resilience and Adaptation in Rehabilitation. This research series will be held via virtual platform across three days, for 90 minutes each research series. We are pleased to release our preliminary session program, featuring research and health experts discussing the impact of pandemic events during 2020 on rehabilitation systems, services, connections and community.The full research session program will be released shortly.
DON’T MISS OUT, REGISTER NOW, for session one on Wednesday 4 November 2020 at 1.30pm.

Dr Camila Shirota
Advanced Queensland Fellow, The Hopkins Centre
Her research interests include neuromuscular control of human gait and its applications to rehabilitation; (technology-based) assessment of sensorimotor function; and translation of technologies into clinical and home environments.Camila Shirota received her Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University while working at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. During her Ph.D., she investigated able-bodied and above-knee amputee balance recovery from tripping perturbations during walking. She was then a post-doctoral researcher at ETH Zurich, where she was involved in studies using powered exoskeletons to better understand unimpaired walking, and to restore locomotor function in people with spinal cord injury. She was also a researcher at the University of Zurich, where she studied the use of technology to support unsupervised gait training in
