I was born in 1955. I obtained my physiotherapy diploma in 1976. From 1881 to 2009 I worked in the Geriatric Hospital of Dijon ( Pr Michel Gaudet and Pr Pierre Pfitzenmeyer) as chief of a geriatric rehabilitation team. I have carried out clinical research concerning motor frailty, problems in equilibrium, falls and post-fall syndrome. My PhD at the University of Burgundy was on the effects of ageing on posture and movement with an emphasis on standing up and sitting down.
