DM Orthotics’ Martin Matthews presents at SOSORT 2014
The esteemed SOSORT Conference, now in its 11th year, is an annual event which focuses on non-surgical management of spinal deformities and pulls a highly specialised, professional medical audience from around the world.
The conference is held in a different country each year and Wiesbaden has a rich history of rehabilitation, health and medical exhibitions. The main purpose of the conference is to provide a forum to discuss and bring forward the latest status of clinical and technical research for spinal conditions, with attention also being drawn towards patients and their families.
Martin Matthews is recognised as one of the world’s leading specialists in the treatment of Scoliosis and formulated the DMO Postural Scoliosis Suit and DMO Structural Scoliosis Suit used to treat Neuropathic Onset and Ideopathic Scoliosis respectively.
His presentation gave an overview of the benefits of using Lycra based Orthoses in the management of Scoliosis, such as; treatment of spinal curvature, range of movement, greater proprioceptive feedback and improved balance
Martin said of the conference,
“SOSORT is such an important event in the medical calendar. It’s a great melting pot and meeting place for people from all around the world to discuss new developments and to gain knowledge in the field of non-operative scoliosis treatment and of course it’s a great honour to be asked to present. It’s a great privilege to be able to pass on my knowledge to such a respected group of my peers.”
SOSORT 2014 runs from 7th to 9th May at the Dorint Palais Hotel, Wiesbaden, Germany.
