Working Groups and Chapters

The IFESS Executive Board has four working groups to fulfil the aims of the society.

Development: develop membership benefits to improve interaction within the association and build a self-sustaining community

Conference: organize IFESS conferences and IFESS promotion. Cooperate with other societies such as the Rehabweek organization.

Education: create and support the development of educational material for patients, researchers, students, clinicians and engineers to promote quality research, high standards of patient care and access to treatment.

Communication: reach out to patients, researchers, students, clinicians and engineers interested in the field of electrical stimulation technologies and create opportunities for networking and dissemination of knowledge.

We ask our IFESS member base to actively participate in these working groups.

The UK and Ireland Chapter was launched at the INS meeting in Cardiff UK in 2008. It represents the UK and the Republic of Ireland and has the specific objectives to not only support FES research, but to translate research into clinical practice and develop stronger collaboration between engineers, clinicians and especially neuroscientists.
