TO THE FOREFRONT OF ReHABILITATION ROBOTICS: A CONFERENCE IN ROME CO-ORGANISED BY DON GNOCCHI FOUNDATION AND SANT’ANNA SCHOOL BIOROBOTICS INSTITUTE

The conference “New Technologies and Rehabilitation Robotics” in Rome (Centro Congressi Auditorium Aurelia) on January 19 is a collaborative endeavour between the Don Gnocchi Foundation  and the Institute of Biorotics of Sant’Anna School and will explore the findings of a research project examining the translation of technologies across Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. The conference will be attended by delegates from higher education institutions, NHS and local authorities. Speakers Maria Chiara Carrozza and Stefano Mazzoleni from Sant’Anna School will focus on therapy after neurological injury and stroke rehabilitation.

The conference will cover different topics related to biomechanics, brain-computer interfaces, mechatronics, wearable sensors, physical therapy, advanced rehabilitation systems and innovative 3D techniques. Keynote lectures will present the development, testing, and effective utilization of orthotic and prosthetic devices. Due to the aging population trends, experts say the number of people with mobility impairments that need assistive robotic technologies (to develop devices that patients can use at home and reduce healthcare costs) will continue to escalate.

Professor Maria Chiara Carrozza has joined the Don Gnocchi Foundation as new scientific director and will attend the conference “New Technologies and Rehabilitation Robotics”.
