We are now full for our 9th annual Kinarm Camp, will be held Monday, May 16 – Friday, May 20, 2022 ‘virtually’ from ~ 10 am to 4 pm EDST.
**Post event update: a recording of this event is available here.**
Neuroscience is next week, and while we truly wish we could meet you in-person, we hope that you will connect with us through one of these options:
Attend one of our Neuroscience Virtual Networking Events
Can robotic technology bring neurological assessment into the 21st century?

Our 8th annual Kinarm Camp, will be held Monday, May 17 – Friday, May 21, 2021 ‘virtually’ from ~ 10 am EDT to 4 pm EDT
The objective of the Camp is to provide focused training on Custom Task development for Kinarm Labs. The five-day agenda is tailored to Basic Researchers and will provide hands-on learning on the use of MATLAB Simulink and Stateflow to develop Custom Task Programs for the Kinarm Lab. New users, graduate students, and post docs are all invited to attend. Clinical researchers with an interest in Custom Task development are also welcome to attend.
We’re back in the swing of things and looking forward to engaging with you at these upcoming meetings!

Customers of BKIN Technologies can receive preferential registration rates for the upcoming RehabWeek conference in Toronto, June 2019.
In order to apply the membership discount, please proceed as follows:
- Choose that you are a member of IISART during the registration process (https://www.rehabweek.org/registration/)
- Enter the company-specific code IISART-BKIN-182584
- When asked which conference you mainly plan to attend, choose INRS. This does not mean you cannot attend other conferences during the RehabWeek, but it helps to allocate resources.
Please feel free to share the code.
We are very proud to be sponsoring the first conference on Progress in Clinical Motor Control: Neurorehabilitation at UPenn this summer. The meeting will bring together leading scientists in the basic, engineering, and clinical sciences to exchange and share research and development in cutting edge science and technology applied to neurorehabilitation. http://hhd.psu.edu/college/motor-control-conference
We still have a couple of spots available for our 5th annual KINARM Camp. It will be held Monday, May 14 to Friday noon, May 18, 2018 in Kingston, Ontario.
The objective of the Camp is to provide focused training on Custom Task development for KINARM Labs. The five day agenda is tailored to Basic Researchers and will provide hands-on learning on the use of MATLAB Simulink and Stateflow to develop Custom Task Programs for the KINARM Lab. New users, graduate students, and post docs are all invited to attend. Clinical researchers with an interest in Custom Task development are also welcome.
The preliminary agenda can be viewed here: KINARM Camp 2018.DRAFT
Attendance is limited to 12 registrants, so please complete the registration form to hold your spot.
If you’re awaiting approvals, please complete the form nonetheless and note that your attendance is tentative.
Long-time KINARM Lab user, Dr. Sean Dukelow, spoke at the International Neurorehabilitation Symposium in London, UK last week. INRS was one of four conferences that bound together for the biennial installment of RehabWeek. In his session, he described his research related to identifying and quantifying neurological impairments from stroke, concussion, CP and other disorders. He spoke of his long-term longitudinal study monitoring outcomes from over 100 subjects with stroke. Over the 6 month period he noted clear differences between early responders, late responders and non-responders. His results highlight the need for more sensitive, targeted identification of sensory and motor deficits to optimize rehabilitation after stroke. Further he has noted that the trajectory of recovery for some individuals with mild to moderate stroke may be much longer than previously considered. underlined the need for better characterization of impairments post stroke (Semrau, et al, 2015).
