Hocoma is member of the International Industry Society in Advanced Rehabilitation Technology. IISART is dedicated to the development and promotion of robotics and advanced healthcare technology in rehabilitation for the benefit of the patient.
IISART represents the interests of developers, manufacturers, and marketers of medical devices and their accessories, active capital medical equipment, and services in the field of robotics and advanced healthcare technology in rehabilitation and strives to do this in interaction with all other stakeholders in this field.
ARTIC is an international network of trailblazer institutions in the use of advanced rehabilitation technologies. The network was originally initiated by, but is now independent of Hocoma. By introducing a standardized assessment protocol, the members generate valuable data upon which evidence-based guidelines can ensure a sophisticated use of modern technology and therefore improve patient outcome.
Active members are Spaulding Rehabilitation Center, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Shepherd Center, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Moss Rehab, Sheltering Arms, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Wellington Hospital, Schön Kliniken Vogtareuth, Von Hauernsches Kinderspital München, Rehabilitace Kladruby, Bundang Seoul National University Hospital, Rehaklinik Zihlschlacht and Kinder-, und Jugend Rehabilitationszentrum Affoltern.
