The wide spectrum of employment in Rehabilitation of Robotics and New
Technologies is a concrete reality: unfortunately proper programs with sufficient
know-how are sparse and skills needed to appropriately apply these devices are
usually achieved “on the field” by rehabilitation professionals without any prior
The actual gap is mostly educational and there is a great need to enhance training
and knowledge for Physicians.
Robotic Committee of the European Society of PRM (ESPRM) promotes an
innovative approach based on a summer school (Robotic Rehabilitation Summer
School-R2S2) with the main goals to enhance scientific information and foster
education in these advanced applications: the educational programme would be
developed in the frame of the theoretical knowledge and evidence-based approach
in connection with growing clinical experiences realized by PRM specialists all
over the Europe: a broad functional and practical approach in relation to different
clinical matters in Rehabilitation.
The school will be under the organisation of RT Committee under the ausices
of ESPRM, UEMS PRM Section & Board and IISART. The international faculty
for theoretical and practical activities will be present during the School and
by the on-line educational activity by the creation of a specific European
Robotic School WebSite.The project aims to realize similar future editions in
different advanced rehabilitation centres spread all over Europe in cooperation
with national societies.
