The organisers of RehabWeek have confirmed the dates for this year’s virtual conference will be the 23-25th September 2021.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and travel restrictions across the world, the International Consortium for Rehabilitation Technology (ICRT) decided together with the Kenes Group and the local organisers to postpone the next in-person RehabWeek to 2022. As alternative, you are invited to attend RehabWeek Virtual ‘21.

Along with the Kenes Group, the ICRT as the hosting society would like to welcome you to a 3-day engaging networking event, emphasising on-line and real-time interaction and participation. The meeting focuses on top-level keynotes, interactive sessions, round tables, small-group discussions among participants, and live virtual visits to clinical facilities, presenting real-time hands-on applications of advanced rehabilitation technologies.

RehabWeek is a well-established and highly reputable biennial conference that brings together engineers, clinicians, researchers and other stakeholders in the rehabilitation technology field. In 2019, six societies and more than 1,600 delegates from all over the world joined in Toronto for the 4th RehabWeek. Now in 2021 the four ICRT societies have the pleasure to announce 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)

RehabWeek 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.

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.
