Suffolk-based IPRS Mediquipe Ltd (part of the IPRS Group) hosted their successful annual Isokinetic User Day at the Manchester Institute of Health and Performance on November 9, 2017.

More than 50 people attended, enjoying workshops, isokinetic demonstrations, alongside a group of expert speakers – exploring the applications and research from the range of World-leading Biodex equipment.

This annual event attracted top sports medicine experts, surgeons, researchers and students from organisations such as professional football and rugby, hospitals, private practices, and research and academic facilities. Delegates travelled from all four corners of the UK to attend this prestigious event.

Knowledge, experience, latest research, and isokinetic protocols were shared by speakers, enabling clinicians to further their knowledge and gain CPD credits.

Delegates were greeted by an excellent array of speakers from diverse backgrounds and were also joined by Bill Galway, director for International Business Development at Biodex USA, giving them the chance to have a preview of future technology upcoming to the Isokinetic world.

The IPRS Group, based at Little Blakenham near Ipswich are a multiple award winning company, with their IPRS Health sector winning one of the most prestigious awards at this year’s Rehabilitation First Awards - The Rehabilitation Initiative of the Year Award (Provider) for their digital health platforms incorporating myIPRSHealth (their self-help portal), online referral portals, their innovative virtual Triage, online patient webinars and their App.

John Milroy, managing director of IPRS Mediquipe said: “As a Suffolk business with national reach, we were delighted that some of our Biodex users from all stretches of the United Kingdom and Ireland were able to join us on this exceptional clinically educational day. A thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating day, gaining insights from the experts using the equipment for assessment, treatment or research on a daily basis. We run these annual events in order to get like-minded experts together to share their experiences and research from different areas of the medical genre feeding it through to each other and passing on knowledge to other interested clinicians. We are so proud to be the UK and Ireland’s sole supplier of this world-leading Biodex equipment for over 22 years.”

Dave Fevre, sports science specialist said: “I enjoyed it as always. It must have been a good day as I received an email from the doctor at Derby, who used to be at Blackburn Rovers with me, saying how good a day it was - from what he had been told by various delegates who came; Good lecturers, good organisation and good company – what more can you ask for?”
