Special Interest Group on Telerehabilitation

Written by Super User. Posted in Telerehabilitation

The World Federation of Neurorehabilitation activated a Special Interest Group on Telerehabilitation (SIGOT) during the World Congress on Neurorehabilitation (WCNR) of Hong Kong on February 2006.

The aim of this group is:

  • to promote and improve studies in this field;
  • to exchange experiences from different countries
  • to get in touch with research groups worldwide who are studying this topic.

This web site is the meeting point for the different experiences on Telerehabilitation field. The Telerehabilitation is strictly connected with the robotic rehabilitation. In fact the electronic controls of the devices could be easily connected to the Telerehabilitation systems. For this reason this sit will treat also the use of some robotic system looking at the efficacy independently from the remote connection.

A core part of the site is the Forum where you can exchange experiences and proposal about telerehabilitation. This is an interdisciplinary group and medical doctors, physical doctors, engineering etc. are welcome.
