Key Note Presentation :J.C. (Jaap) Van der Wal MD PhD
The Second International Fascia Research Congress, held on October 27-30, 2009 at Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Proprioception and Kinesthesia are arguably the most import concepts in sensorimotor control in exercise rehabilitation science. IMHO, Dr. Van der Wals work has literally blown the doors off old ideas on the fundamental organization of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. More importantly how this relates to designing more effect strategies, methods and tools to treat, train, rehabilitate and optimize the 'Human Movement Matrix' (Siff, Supertraining).

His 'Dynamic Ligaments' model goes a long way in my opinion in finally defining synergies, primitives, isometric force fields and modular organization of the somatosensory system.

"This finding suggests that the structural units for mechanoreceptors are not necessarily muscles but connective and muscular tissues organized in series (e.g., Wal, 2009; Wal & Drukker, 1988)."
Is Tensegrity the Functional Architecture of the Equilibrium Point Hypothesis? Motor Control, 2010,
Paula L. Silva, Sérgio T. Fonseca, and M.T. Turvey

In my opinion, this is truly brilliant, ground breaking pedagogy and deserves broad recognition along with the work of the greats..
