Rehab Week is a well-established and highly reputable biennial conference that brings together engineers, clinicians, researchers and other stakeholders in the field of rehabilitation technology. In 2019, six societies and more than 1,600 delegates from all over the world gathered in Toronto for the 4th RehabWeek. Now in 2021, the four ICRT societies have created a virtual meeting with the main aim to interact and foster interdisciplinary exchange. The four participating societies are:
· International Consortium on Rehabilitation Robotics (ICORR)
· International Functional Electrical Stimulation Society (IFESS)
· International Industry Society in Advanced Rehabilitation Technology (IISART)
· International Society for Virtual Rehabilitation (ISVR)
Rehab Week Virtual ‘21 will address the challenges and opportunities for technology in rehabilitation, especially in this last year. As the healthcare landscape continues to evolve, intense cooperation among clinicians, engineers, researchers, scientists, health practitioners, policy makers, users and industry remains essential for making impactful changes for our patients and their families, our communities, and the world.
Rehab Week provides an outstanding international forum for interdisciplinary discussions, share insight into clinical application through real-time, virtual site visits, discuss new trends and developments (e.g. requirements on standards), and other hot topics related to rehabilitation technology. RehabWeek Virtual ‘21 will provide everyone an opportunity to share the latest understandings of academic and industrial research, and more importantly inspiring, innovative, and participative discussion around rehabilitation technology.
