- Presentations: 1. 2012 POSNA presentation, entitled “Plantar Pressures following Tibialis Anterior Tendon Transfers in children with Clubfoot.” This project was also presented at the Gait and Clinical Movement Association and at the IFAB meeting in 2012. 2. A poster, entitled “Is There a Correlation Between Gait, Functional Testing, and Parent-Perceived Outcome Assessment in Children with Clubfeet?” was exhibited at the GCMA meeting as well. 3. A poster entitled “Ankle Kinematics at 2 and 5 Years of Age Following Treatment for Clubfoot: A Longitudinal Study” was exhibited at both the 2012 POSNA and GCMA meetings. Our poster at the GCMA meeting was nominated for consideration for best poster. 4. Gait t analysis as a functional outcome measure in clubfoot presented at the following visiting professorships: the 2011 Wilbur Weston annual visiting professorship (LA Shriner’s Hospital), the 2011 Israeli Pediatric Orthopaedic Society, and the 2012 Australian Pediatric Orthopaedic Society. My lecture was well received at all these meetings, and stimulated much discussion.
