SPEAKERS:

MARLENA KLAIC
Occupational Therapist

Topic: MAXIMISING UPPER LIMB FUNCTION USING EMERGING TECHNOLOGY - THE HAND HUB

Marlena is an occupational therapist with extensive clinical experience in working with people with brain impairment stemming from stroke, traumatic brain injury and other neurological conditions. Currently working as the research leader in Occupational Therapy at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Marlena has a special interest in translational research and supporting clinicians to implement evidence into practice. She is completing her PhD titled “Enhancing the uptake of EBP with allied health clinicians”.


KATHY KUIPERS
Occupational Therapist

Topic: NEW TECHNOLOGIES IN A CLINICAL PRACTICE

Kathy has worked with children and adults with brain injury and other neurological conditions for more than 30 years, predominantly in community settings. Her PhD focused on the development and use of a clinical reasoning protocol to guide clinicians’ decision making and intervention choices in the context of neurological upper limb dysfunction. Her research is published in peer reviewed journals and she is the co-author of “Neurorehabilitation of the Upper Limb Across the Lifespan: Managing Hypertonicity for Optimal Function”. Kathy has her own private practice and is coordinator of the new Upper Limb Hypertonicity Clinic at Mater Private Rehab. The majority of her private clients have significantly affected upper limbs and are between two to 20 years postinjury, most having received minimal post-hospital occupational therapy services. Using the SaeboFlex with these clients is resulting in surprising functional benefits in a client group that is typically under-serviced.


KATHY GOODCHILD
Occupational Therapist

Topic: CLIENT EXPERIENCE USING SAEBO IN ADULTS

Kathy has been an OT for 18 years, working in Brisbane & surrounding regions in public & private hospitals, community & non-government organisations. Kathy’s area of interest is stroke rehab & complex neurological presentations and an interest in technology assisting rehabilitation.
