What is Cafe Scientifique?
Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Enjoy listening to a short talk from a guest speaker before engaging in debate and discussion around the topic. Find out more about the international sensation that is Cafe Scientifique by looking at their website.
We run every first Tuesday of the month (with the odd exception) from 7.30pm – 9pm with doors open from 7.00pm. You don’t need to register for our events, just come along and enjoy yourself! Make sure you get here early for a good seat though as we fill up fast!

Tuesday 3rd October
Breathe your way into balance – PGR Francesco Ferraro
During Daily Activity, our body needs to re-adjust itself to avoid falls. The muscles’ strength contributes to postural adjustments to stop us losing balance. But with advancing age, this mobility and strength diminishes, putting us at risk of falls.
Recent research has shown that the inspiratory (breathing) muscles may work as postural muscles. We know that muscular training programs might help to prevent fall accidents. This is why we are testing a novel theory that training the breathing muscles can reduce the risk of falling.
The talk will explain how the inspiratory muscle training works and its relationship with the deep stabiliser muscles of the trunk and lumbopelvic regions (also known as the core muscles).
How to find us
We run our event at Cafe Boscanova on Boscombe High Street – (650 Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth, BH1 4BP). There is free parking available after 6pm on the nearby Hawkwood road next to the Sainsbury’s as well as a regular bus timetable.
