Dear Friends and Colleagues of the Rehabilitation Technology World,
On behalf of the International Consortium on Rehabilitation Technology (ICRT) and the local organizers, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the 7th RehabWeek, from September 24th to 28th, 2023, in the beautiful city of Singapore.
Advances in rehabilitation science, technology and clinical practice are changing many patients' lives and helping them reintegrate into our society. RehabWeek 2023 aims to cover inspiring innovations in Neurorehabilitation and their societal impacts. The highest quality of the scientific programme is a longstanding tradition with the RehabWeek, thanks to internationally renowned speakers from clinical neurosciences and rehabilitation technology. The multidisciplinary approach to Neurorehabilitation, which includes physicians, physical and occupational therapists, rehabilitation engineers, neuroscientists, and many other professions, is well reflected in the programme. At RehabWeek 2023, interdisciplinary networking will take a step further with tracks and workshops bridging neurorehabilitation robotics and related disciplines.
Come and join us in Singapore, a vibrant and innovative city-state located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. It consists of the diamond-shaped Singapore Island and some 60 small islets. With its strong drive for innovation and its bridge between east and west, Singapore has become a well-known hub for business, technology, education and culture, making it the perfect place for the RehabWeek community to meet!
Along with our partners Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and Kenes Group, Ruijin Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine and the Singapore National Healthcare Group (NHG) as the hosting institutions, we would like to extend our welcome to the rehabilitation technology world.
RehabWeek is a well-established and highly reputable biennial conference. In 2022, eight societies and more than 1,000 delegates from around the world joined us in Rotterdam for the 6th RehabWeek. This time, we proudly announce that eight reputable associations will join us at RehabWeek 2023. These societies are:
- the International Consortium on Rehabilitation Robotics (ICORR)
(technically co-sponsored by IEEE RAS and IEEE EMBS)
- the International Functional Electrical Stimulation Society (IFESS)
- the International Industry Society in Advanced Rehabilitation Technology (IISART)
- the International Society for Virtual Rehabilitation (ISVR)
- the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine (ACRM)
- MotusAcademy (M.A.)
- Society of Rehabilitation Medicine (Singapore) (SRMS)
- Malaysian Association of Rehabilitation Physicians with ASEAN Rehabilitation Medicine Association (MARP-ARMA)
- Masterclass in Neurotechnology (MiNT)
The RehabWeek conference has historically been a meeting place for leaders in the field of rehabilitation. We are excited to announce that in 2023, several societies who have participated in RehabWeek in the past have expressed their interest in remaining connected with us by organizing certain sub-events or sessions of the conference. We will announce in due course upon confirmation of their participation. We wish you a successful RehabWeek 2023 and a great time in Singapore.
