GRAIL therapy for children, from research to clinical implementation

This webinar will present the experiences of using the GRAIL with children with gait and balance disorders.

This webinar will discuss the use of the GRAIL with children. The three speakers, who between them have almost 20 years combined experience with the GRAIL, will present on their experiences with the device, from research to clinical practice. Their insights will provide a window into how the GRAIL technology can be integrated in the paediatric rehabilitation setting for children with gait and balance difficulties.
