The Locked-in Syndrome International Conference is the first event hosted by Hope Unlocked. Hope Unlocked is a new society for Locked-in Syndrome (LIS) sufferers, their carers, friends and families, plus professionals in the field.
The event is free and will be held on Zoom. Researchers from across the world will present international developments in the field of LIS treatments, which can support patients and attempt to ‘unlock’ the locked in. You can register via the link below.
Locked-in syndrome is a rare neurological disorder in which patients are unable to move anything except their eyes, despite being fully conscious. It is an incredibly disabling and isolating condition, and feelings of isolation have been exaggerated by the pandemic. The problem is that fellow sufferers are spread around the world and independent travel is out of question always having to be accompanied by a carer making the costs of travel prohibitive.
The Locked-in Syndrome International Conference is an opportunity to meet fellow patients and learn about new assistive technologies and treatments. You can see the full schedule of webinars below.
All times are in GMT. For any further information, please contact the organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org
