SALBIS group present at the 2nd joint meeting of the Societies of Geriatrics and Gerontology of the Principality of Asturias and CyL.
On 14 and 15 October 2022, the @GRUPOSALBIS was present at the 2nd joint meeting of the Societies of Geriatrics and Gerontology, the 35th Congress of the Society of Geriatrics and Gerontology of Castilla y León and 11th Congress of the Society of Geriatrics and Gerontology of the Principality of Asturias.
Our colleague María Mercedes Reguera García gave a paper entitled ‘Postural Control in Institutionalised Elderly People in the Rehabilitation Service’. The aim of the study was to determine the balance and gait of people living in residential homes in El Bierzo who come to the physiotherapy service due to balance problems.
The study was made possible thanks to a collaboration agreement between the ULE and the Conde de Aldama (Ponferrada) and Río de Boeza (La Ribera de Folgoso) residences. Also, thanks to the Research Grant from the Professional Association of Physiotherapists of Castilla y León
