Organizers from Rutgers University announced that the Fifth International Workshop on Virtual Rehabilitation will take place from August 29-30. The workshop's purpose is to showcase computer games and associated technologies that can help individuals recovering from strokes, injuries, congenital disorders and psychological trauma to regain impaired functions. The two-day event, which is scheduled to take place at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City, will include papers presented by scientists from 11 countries, exhibits by seven companies, research demonstrations and a panel discussion on telerehabilitation by researchers and clinicians. The event will be chaired by organizer Grigore (Greg) Burdea, professor of electrical and computer engineering at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. According to the workshop's announcement: “Virtual rehabilitation gives therapists new tools to do their jobs more effectively, and game-like exercises engage patients who may otherwise lack interest or motivation to complete traditional exercise regimens. It also can extend the reach of rehab treatment to remote clinics or homes and enable people to tap the expertise of specialists anywhere in the world. Many of these tools use sophisticated instruments such as sensor-equipped gloves, braces or platforms to sense movements a patient is using to control a video exercise and measure the therapy's progress.” Visit the official website for more information, including registration and exhibitor details.
