Aftab Patla Award
The Aftab Patla Innovation Awards are supported in part by Northern Digital Inc. and ISPGR and in honour of Dr. Aftab Patla who passed away on January 29, 2007. He was a valued member of the International Society for Posture and Gait, and a Professor in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo. Highly accomplished very early on in his career, Dr. Patla was known for his innovative research and thinking outside the box. His research provided new insights into how locomotion is generated and controlled in humans. He published over 200 scientific papers and used both experimental and modeling techniques to provide insight into important problems related to gait and posture.
