RehabTech Asia 2015 to showcase cutting edge technologies

March 24, 2015

Singapore, 17 March 2015 – The Singapore Rehabilitation Conference, along with the NeuroRehabilitation Medicine & Innovation Asia Pacific Congress and the Rehabilitation Engineering Society and Assistive Technology of North America (RESNA) Asia Pacific Conference will be held in conjunction with the second edition of RehabTech Asia from 26 to 30 March 2015 at Singapore EXPO Convention and Exhibition Centre and its convention wing MAX Atria. The addition of these conferences reinforces RehabTech Asia’s commitment to providing an integrated platform in Asia for meaningful discussions about how society and the industry can rehabilitate patients with disabilities, enable the elderly and improve overall standards of integrated care.

The annual Singapore Rehabilitation Conference, jointly organised by SingEx Exhibitions and Tan Tock Seng Hospital, focuses on improving and increasing access to technology and rehabilitation products and services to enable inclusion and participation for people with disabilities.

Keynote speaker at the Singapore Rehabilitation Conference, Dr Alberto Esquenazi, Chief Medical Officer at MossRohab, Pennysylvania, USA, says, “I will be looking at case studies where bioengineering, when applied to improve care, has played a key role in developing substitutes to improve human function. I hope to plant small seeds for new ideas and encourage collaborative communication between medical professionals, engineers and the potential users to further advance what is possible as new technology becomes available.”

RehabTech Asia will also feature the inaugural NeuroRehabilitation Medicine & Innovation Asia Congress, which aims to be the premier networking platform for neurology, neurosurgery, and physical medicine and rehabilitation professionals interested in improving the continuum of care for people with disabilities. Delegates can expect to learn about the latest developments, share ideas and experience, and create sustainable collaborations.

Also for the first time, RESNA will be bringing the first Asian edition of the RESNA Asia Pacific Conference to be held alongside RehabTech Asia. With the theme “Technology & Ageing”, the conference will be a unique, multi-disciplinary gathering of assistive technology professionals from around the world.

RESNA will also be presenting the AT Fundamentals Course which will provide interested individuals with an overview of numerous areas of assistive technology. It is also designed to broaden the knowl­edge of AT providers. Multiple case studies will be used during the course to illustrate applications of principles and theories in assistive technology provision.
