INRS workshops

During workshop day on July 17th, three IISART companies are organizing workshop. Please take the opportunity to attend these workshops for free. Don’t forget to sign up for them during the registration process! The organizing companies are cordially inviting you and are looking forward to discussing with you their latest developments!.

Case studies in Neurorehabilitation using Functional Electrical Stimulation

Workshop responsible: 

Hasomed GmbH

For more than 200 years we have known that electricity applied to the body can cause muscle contraction and more. Over the last 50 years our understanding of muscle physiology has improved and with it so has the technology to make FES one of the most powerful and flexible tools for rehabilitation.

Despite it's safety and efficacy, FES is still under-utilised in routine clinical practice.  Modern systems like the RehaMove by Hasomed GmbH permit sophisticated control of the timing and manner of how FES can be delivered so that "Functional" Electrical Stimulation becomes truly effective in ways not dreamed of in the past.

The speakers will extend your vision of what is possible with FES through presentation and discussion of case studies, demonstrations and presentation of the theoretic background

This event will be suitable for all professionals inspired to work with individuals recovering from catastrophic injury. We will in particular highlight the use of Sequence Mode Software from Hasomed GmbH which offers unprecedented control of FES signals. Sequence Mode allows precise time-based or cyclic activation and deactivation of multiple stimulation channels. This allows FES to augment many aspects of rehabilitation such as gait, posture, upper limb function and more.

Out-Patient Treatment as Lifetime Care – Working Towards a Total Solution in Rehabilitation

Workshop responsible: 

Hocoma / Motekforce Link

Because of the burden on healthcare costs it is expected that the emphasis of patient treatment in rehabilitation will shift from in-patient to out-patient. This will be associated with an increased need for smart, user-friendly solutions which incorporate expert clinical knowledge, potentially related to in-patient data. Rehabilitation technology becomes more and more accessible for out-patient rehabilitation, both in primary physical therapy practices and home based rehabilitation.

In this workshop participants will learn about the past, current state-of-the-art and the future in rehabilitation technology.

The workshop will not be limited to single devices like the Lokomat, Armeo, Andago, CAREN, GRAIL or C-Mill, but focus on the patient’s journey from injury to recovery. From a clinical perspective rehabilitation robotics, treadmills, motion capture and augmented- and virtual reality therapies will be discussed.

Participants will work through at least two relevant patient-cases for which the appropriate therapeutic goals can be suggested, based on these goals we will discuss and choose the appropriate technologies to support clinical decision making and enhance intervention outcome. In this way the total solution to support patients in any phase of the rehabilitation process will be illustrated in close relation to the patient's recovery process. Participants are encouraged to suggest cases based on their clinical experience, which will then be discussed in the workshop.

Participants will also experience how organization of out-patient clinics could look like in the future. The result of the workshop will be an inspiring representation of a total solution for out-patient rehabilitation now and in the future.

In-Patient Treatment from Injury to Discharge – Working Towards a Total Solution in Rehabilitation

Workshop responsible: 

Hocoma / Motekforce Link

Anno 2017 rehabilitation technology has taken a profound position in routinely clinical rehabilitation services for all sorts of patient populations, ranging from neurological, neuromuscular and orthopedic/musculoskeletal disorders till frail elderly with increased fall risk. In this interactive workshop participants will learn about the past, current and the future state-of-the-art in rehabilitation technology for clinical services. Additionally, we will include an outlook by gathering views on how rehabilitation will change in the near future due to the complex and constantly evolving demands. 

The workshop will comprise, but not be limited to devices like the Erigo, Lokomat, Armeo, Andago, CAREN, GRAIL or C-Mill. The focus of this workshop will be on the patient’s journey from injury to discharge during their stay in an in-patient clinic or institute. From a clinical perspective we will discuss the use of rehabilitation robotics, treadmills, motion capture and augmented- and virtual reality therapies together with the participants and an international expert panel.

Participants will work through at least two relevant patient-cases for which the appropriate therapeutic goals can be suggested, based on these goals we will discuss and choose the appropriate technologies to support clinical decision making and enhance intervention outcome. In this way the total solution to support patients in any phase of the rehabilitation process will be illustrated in close relation to the patient's recovery process. Participants are encouraged to suggest cases based on their clinical experience, which will then be discussed in the workshop.

During the workshop a comprehensive representation of the total solution will emerge as it related to the patient’s journey from injury to discharge.
