MOTIONrehab Clinical Director, Sarah Daniel
Rehab Week 2021
Clinical Director, Sarah Daniel will be presenting and participating in Q & A sessions as part of an expert panel at Rehab Week 2021 this week. Sarah’s presentation ‘Rethinking Rehabilitation’ will discuss why Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation requires Robotic Technology, sharing her experiences with the Tyromotion LEXO Robotic Gait Trainer.

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.

It is an outstanding international forum for interdisciplinary discussions aimed at driving innovation in rehabilitation and MOTIONrehab is proud to be recognised for its work establishing the UK’s first Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation Centre in the UK augmented by robotics, sensor-based technology and VR in 2018.
