Welcome to REHAB!

REHAB is one of the world’s leading trade fairs for rehabilitation, therapy, care and inclusion.

The three days of the trade fair from 15 to 17 June 2023 on the barrier-free grounds of Messe Karlsruhe were all about experiencing, trying out and discussing the latest innovations.

For the 22nd time, trade visitors such as therapists, medical professionals, carers, medical supply retailers and rehabilitation and orthopaedic technicians as well as relatives and interested parties from associations and institutions came to REHAB Karlsruhe to discover the latest trends, therapy offers and innovations in the industry. Over 300 exhibitors from 17 countries presented their products and services in three exhibition halls.

Another key element of this year’s event was professional development. Seminars and similar events took place in the exhibition forums, at the CON.THERA therapy conference and at the annual conferences of the German Association of Bobath Therapists.

Visitors were able to try out and compare hundreds of new technical aids, assistance technologies and mobility aids at eleven themed marketplaces and obtain personalised advice. Qualified experts and self-help groups were available for personal discussions, while important topics and trends in the provision of assistive devices were highlighted on three stages in presentations, discussion panels and workshops.

REHAB Karlsruhe is all about inspiration and showcasing technical innovations and solutions as well as services for improving the quality of life and participation of people with disabilities. It is firmly anchored in the industry's calendar and has established itself every two years as THE most important platform for high-quality mobility aids and children’s aids from Germany and other European countries.

The next REHAB will be from 22 to 24 May 2025.
