The Physiotherapy Department of IST College participated at the 23rd International Conference of Sports Rehabilitation and Traumatology, held on 22, 23 and March 24, 2014 in Milan, in collaboration with FIFA.
The conference, which was attended by 2259 people from 71 countries and IST College students, had the opportunity to hear the latest views on the pathology, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of football athletes.
In addition, the students had the opportunity to experience the results of research protocols followed by teams like Real, Barcelona, AC Milan and to chat with doctors and physiotherapists of the above teams. The discussion between physiotherapists and doctors was particularly interesting and piqued the attention of all participants.
Apart from speeches, posters and videos which were held simultaneously in six classrooms and an auditorium, the conference hosted a major exhibition of books and modern equipment for athletic rehabilitation which students could try. At the same time, the conference gave the opportunity to students to send their resumes to the main department of Isokinetic Bologna, where after a series of assessments, they would be hired by the company and FIFA.
Also, the video of the conference was available to all students of physiotherapy college.
The next conference of Isokinetic which will be held in London on 25-26 April and have as a main theme “strategies in soccer” has already ensured a speech and a poster of the group of IST College. IST College is very proud of its students who made a deep impression on the members of FIFA on the scientific method, style and ethos.
