This year’s conferences are in Glasgow (26th October) and Birmingham (2nd November). The conferences are aimed at all who have attended LLT training over the 15 years we have been in existence, but are also available to anyone who want to know more about LLT training and get a taster of the LLT experience.

These conferences give participants the chance to:

  • keep up to date with research and practice.
  • network with fellow instructors from a wide range of settings and disciplines.
  • meet some top names in the research world in the fields of Falls, Osteoporosis, Sedentary Behaviour, Stroke and Exercise for the Older Person.
  • review technique and learn new exercises and strategies to improve practice.
  • share successes and troubles.
  • meet the LLT team (tutors and office staff).

Key theme for 2019 Conferences;

“Reaching Effective Dose – embracing traditional approaches and technology to increase adherence outside of group sessions.”

Birmingham – 2nd November 2019

Keynote speakers;

Meg Lowry, Principal Physiotherapist at Next Step Physio.
Australian Physiotherapist Meg Lowry is a clinician on a mission to help people better shape their course of ageing. This presentation will explore ways that we can inject more FUN and variety into evidence based exercise programs to promote both enjoyment and adherence to exercise. Presented via Skype, Meg will discuss gameification theory, and with the use of videos she will guide us through practical examples of how we can all gameify strength, balance and cardio exercises. Come to this presentation ready to MOVE because Meg likes to involve the whole audience in an exergame or two!

Professor Peter Gore, Managing Director at ADL Smartcare.
The ADL LifeCurve™ and the importance of true early intervention: What does this look like and how do we deliver it?” The ADL LifeCurve™ is a tool developed by ADL Research and Newcastle University’s Institute for Ageing which is used to map age related functional decline. It provides a framework for understanding the most appropriate stage to intervene and which interventions are most effective. Research has shown that people lose the ability to do Activities of Daily Living in a particular order. By understanding this, we can intervene at the right time to achieve compression of functional decline and increase healthy life expectancy. The right kind of exercise has a crucial role to play in this.
