“We were inundated with praise for our ECTRIMS #ThinkHand poster; thank you! One neurologist said to me that it was her best poster at ECTRIMS. As the poster was about hand function we made it ‘by hand ‘out of ‘recycled cardboard‘. The ideas behind the poster was a group effort, but credit for the design and creative elements of the poster need to go to Alison, the designer in our group.”

“The use of large helium balloons above the poster in the presentation hall was not appreciated by all. One Pharma representative complained that the balloons were breaking the ECTRIMS rules in that the posters were meant to be scientific and not gimmicky. I did point out to him that the balloons represented data and read-out the main conclusion of our study; i.e that 95% of MSers want wheelchair users to be included in clinical trials. Humbug!”
“The following slide show represents the main data elements presented on our poster.”
“Thank you to all our blog readers and UK neurologists for kindly completing the two surveys that were presented on this poster. “
