Welcome Letter

Dear Friends and Colleagues, 

It is our privilege and great pleasure to invite you to RehabWeek 2019 that will take place from 24 - 28 June 2019 in Toronto, Canada. Along with our partners Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Tourism Toronto and Kenes Group, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute as the hosting institution would like to welcome you to Toronto - the most culturally diverse city in the world.

RehabWeek is a well-established and highly reputable biennial conference. In 2017, four societies and more than 1,200 delegates from all over the world joined us in London for the 3rd RehabWeek. This time, we are proud to announce that six reputable societies will be part of RehabWeek 2019. The six participating societies are:

  • International Consortium on Rehabilitation Robotics (ICORR)
  • International Industry Society in Advanced Rehabilitation Technology (IISART)
  • International Functional Electrical Stimulation Society (IFESS)
  • American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine Conference (ACRM)
  • Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America (RESNA)
  • International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics (ISPO Canada) 

RehabWeek 2019 will address the challenges and opportunities in rehabilitation and bring together colleagues and partners to exchange, debate and network. As the healthcare landscape continues to evolve, close cooperation among clinicians, engineers, researchers, scientists, health practitioners, policy makers, users and industry is essential for making positive changes for our patients and their families, our communities, and the world.

We are excited that we could provide an outstanding international forum to present and discuss progress in research, development, standards, and applications related to the Rehabilitation. RehabWeek 2019 will give everyone an opportunity to share the latest insights of academic and industrial research as well as to experience the unique environment of Toronto. Toronto is the perfect place to unite the most inspiring, innovative, and successful minds in rehabilitation technology.

We very much look forward to your participation and to welcoming you with open arms to Toronto!

Kind regards

RehabWeek Steering Committee
