Bond helps armed forces to enhance physical performance

Assistant Professor of Physiotherapy, Rob Orr has recently returned from the 3rd International Congress on Soldiers’ Physical Performance held in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Rob was specially invited to conduct a keynote speech during a Load Carriage Symposium, as well as present his research work with the NSW Police Force.

Thrilled with attending the event, Rob presented his work to a varied crowd of esteemed scientists and researchers, soldiers and military leaders, policy makers, physicians and healthcare providers.

“I finally got to meet several international military researchers whose work I have been following for over a decade, including my mentor, Dr Joe Knapik,” said Rob.  “It was an unequalled opportunity to collaborate with some of the best tactical researchers from around the world.”

The Conference is designed to deliver innovative scientific programming on soldiers’ physical performance and unmatched networking with subject matter with experts around the world.  The next congress will take place in 2017.
