Karlsruhe, 23 June 2022 - The 21st European Trade Fair for Rehabilitation, Therapy, Care and Inclusion (REHAB) was opened today, 23 June 2022, by Jürgen Dusel, Federal Government Commissioner for the Interests of People with Disabilities, Gabriele Luczak-Schwarz, First Mayor of the City of Karlsruhe, Simone Fischer, Commissioner of the State Government of Baden-Württemberg for the Interests of People with Disabilities and Trade Fair Director Britta Wirtz (from left to right) at Messe Karlsruhe.

"For me, good rehabilitation is essential for inclusion. The right aid can be decisive for being able to exercise the right to participation - including democratic participation. And especially when it comes to children and young people, it becomes clear how important good and custom-fit aids are for inclusion - because here they may set the course for the entire further course of life," clarifies Jürgen Dusel in his opening speech.

For three days, the latest aids, innovations in care, orthopaedic and rehabilitation technology will be presented live on a total of 35,000 square metres by around 350 exhibitors from 18 countries at REHAB Karlsruhe. The trade fair becomes a lively exchange platform for professionals and people with disabilities. Since 1980, REHAB has been one of the most important trade fairs for the topics of rehabilitation, therapy, care and inclusion. Professionals from all over Germany and neighbouring countries come to REHAB to find out about the latest trends in rehabilitation technology, innovations in the aids industry and new therapy options, and to receive interdisciplinary training.
