Webinar Special with Dr. Christopher MacLean

We are excited to announce a very special webinar with Dr. Christopher MacLean titled ‘What’s More Important, The Hip or The Foot? – A Biomechanist’s Perspective’.

Dr. MacLean is one of the world’s leading biomechanists whose work is helping us understand current evidence-based offloading strategies & integrating medical paradigms.

The webinar will run for roughly an hour and will be followed by a 15 minute Q & A session.

The webinar will take place on the evening of May 19th at 8.00pm on Zoom. Registration for the event is required and places are limited.

Chris is the Past President of the Prescription Foot Orthotic Laboratory Association (PFOLA) and Scientific Co-chair (with Dr. Douglas Richie, DPM) of the International Conference on Foot Biomechanics & Orthotic Therapy that is annually sponsored by PFOLA.

Academically, Chris completed a Master of Science (Human Kinetics) at the University of British Columbia with Dr. Jack Taunton. Following this, he completed the Ph.D. (Biomechanics) program at the University of Massachusetts Amherst with Dr. Joseph Hamill. His research efforts over the past several years have focused on the mechanism of overuse running injuries and on the dynamic influence of custom foot orthotic and running shoe interventions. Currently, he holds Adjunct professor positions at the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University. He has presented at over 100 scientific and clinical symposia and has published articles in several peer-reviewed journals.
