“This is another great achievement for the UDOTS team and it reflects the quality of teaching and training that we are able to provide not only in the UK but also overseas. This is an excellent opportunity for further collaboration for UDOTS and UOD with various centres in India. I wish the team all the best for the event and safe journey.”
The UDOTS Team previously gave a successful and well-received Live Demonstration Workshop of Gait Analysis at Indian Orthopaedic Association Conference (IOACON) 2019, which took place in November at the Biswa Bangla Convention Centre in Kolkata.
