On January 19, 2024, experts in physiotherapy gathered in St. Gallen to participate in the 5th Symposium on Acute Inpatient Physiotherapy. Under the topic “Therapy in Transition: Half the Time, Twice as Efficient?” the symposium provided a fascinating glimpse into the ever-evolving world of physiotherapy. A highlight of the event was undoubtedly the Technowalk, which served as a platform for innovative technologies and provided professionals with the opportunity to exchange ideas and solutions.

The 5th Symposium on Acute Inpatient Physiotherapy

The Institute for Physiotherapy at ZHAW, in collaboration with its partners, the Cantonal Hospital St. Gallen and the Interest Group for Physiotherapy Rehabilitation in Acute Hospitals, organized the 5th Symposium on Acute Inpatient Physiotherapy. With the theme “Therapy in Transition?” the symposium provided new food for thought: Where is the focus of therapy shifting? Which therapy approaches are efficient and sustainable? How can patient compliance be increased, and what contextual factors are underestimated? The symposium consisted of presentations in the morning, workshops, and a Technowalk, where attendees could explore innovative technologies for clinical practice. As a producer of an innovative Med-Tech product, our company was invited to showcase our product, STAPPONE Physio, during the Technowalk – a modern and wireless gait analysis solution that supports physiotherapists in numerous areas. Our technology enables precise capture of gait analysis parameters and assists therapists in objectively documenting assessments, developing effective and individualized treatment plans, and objectively evaluating patient progress.

Stappone as an Innovative Technology at the Technowalk

The Technowalk was undoubtedly a highlight of the symposium, providing a valuable opportunity for direct exchange between manufacturers and professionals and allowing for many networking opportunities. We introduced STAPPONE Physio to small groups of physiotherapists through brief presentations and question-and-answer sessions. This interactive approach enabled professionals to better understand the presented technologies and delve into discussions. There was significant interest in STAPPONE Physio as there is no comparable product on the market that visualizes pressure loads and calculates gait parameters, providing such data output. Interesting conversations were had, projects were initiated, and valuable connections were made.
