Chicago, October 8, 2013 – At this year’s PNRS 2013 scientists and clinical users of innovative therapeutic methods and technologies get together to discuss trends, share expertise and gain knowledge on how to assess and use new technologies and therapy concepts in their daily practice. Renowned speakers from highly recognized institutions worldwide will present a wide range of different topics focusing on new technologies in neurorehabilitation, motivating children with virtual environments, surgical and pharmacological interventions and research in pediatric neurological pathologies.
Although new technologies have only recently made their appearance in the field of pediatric neurorehabilitation, they are now widely accepted by a majority of clinicians and therapists as supporting tools in clinical routine. The event is intended to offer clinicians and scientists a valuable platform to discuss how these technologies can be used on the basis of individual patient requirements and training goals in order to ensure a safe, tailor-made and effective rehabilitation for children and adolescents.
The event is the official pre-conference to the annual meeting of the American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM) and is organized by the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, the International Telethons Organization (ORITEL) and the medical technology company Hocoma.
