A wonderful weekend

Almost 200 participants from 28 countries - and a great atmosphere.

Lectures, practical and chat talks - but also the opportunity to talk to friends and colleagues in person after such a long time - it was a great weekend.



Many thanks to all the speakers and the committed participants.

Registration closed!

Dear colleagues - sorry, but we have reached the maximum number of participants allowed.

We can no longer accept further registrations.

Final programme

Prof. Gert-Peter Brüggemann will complete our programme on Sunday morning. He is one of the world's leading clinical biomechanists. Until his retirement, he headed the Institute of Biomechanics and Orthopaedics at the German Sport University Cologne. He will deal with questions of loading and energy storage in the take-off due to pronation.


The programme is ready

Dear colleagues,


it has taken some time to complete the programme, but we believe it was worth it.


We are happy and proud to present you an exceptional programme with outstanding speakers.

And after the long period of online seminars, we now have the opportunity again to observe practical demonstrations on site and to seek direct exchange with the lecturers and colleagues.

We are looking forward to this.


You will find the programme and the bios of the speakers in the corresponding section on the website.


See you in November
