9 October, 2014 - UCLP Centre for Neurorehabilitation Symposium - ‘What’s the Use of Technology in Neurorehabilitation'

Time: -

A symposium on the role of technology in neurorehabilitation. Speakers will explore a range of topics from the fundamentals of neurostimulation in the nervous system to the use of robotics to promote practice and learning. They will discuss how the power of virtual reality and the internet can move rehabilitation into patients’ homes and allow clinicians to collect clinically relevant information on a large scale. Finally, they will consider the importance of getting these technological advances out of the laboratory and into the market place where they can be of greatest benefit to the most people.
