Our 9th annual Kinarm Camp, will be held Monday, May 16 – Friday, May 20, 2022 ‘virtually’ from ~ 10 am to 4 pm EST.
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.
The draft agenda for the 5-day event can be viewed here [link address: https://kinarm.com/download/kinarm-camp-agenda/]. All campers will receive a reading list well in advance of Camp to ensure they can tackle the exercises.
Despite 2020 and 2021 being a virtual Camp, overall Kinarm Campers found the benefits of virtual training outweighed the disadvantages. Further, they enjoyed unique advantages such as:
- Ability to share code
- Ability to review the taped lectures
- Ability to join in with other campers’ trouble-shooting discussions with TAs
- Ability to reduce their carbon footprint

This is what previous campers have said about their experience:
As someone with minimal computer programming experience, I still found the Kinarm camp workshops accessible. Over the course of 5 days, I was able to program my own custom task and I feel like I now have more confidence to experiment (and troubleshoot) with the functionality of simulink and stateflow on my own. Kinarm Camp provided me with the tools to feel confident with custom task programming. Every aspect of the camp was well thought out and the instructors were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Kinarm Camp really helped me to take my training to the next level. The content taught was invaluable, and the exercises were practical and appropriate for all levels of Kinarm expertise. Kinarm Camp indeed helped me to become a really good friend of Kinarm software and hardware.
