REHAB returns at last: Looking forward to the industry’s reunion in Karlsruhe
Share interdisciplinary expertise, meet colleagues, and get to know new products, innovations, ideas and approaches to solutions for one’s own needs: there are many reasons to look forward to REHAB.
Wide range of themes and high proportion of manufacturers
For the first time, REHAB’s extensive area will cover three exhibition halls, the Action Hall, the Atrium and the outdoor space with a spacious catering area – a total of approximately 40,000 barrier-free square metres. Due to the pandemic, fewer exhibitors are expected than in 2019, but the entire product range will nonetheless be represented. From start-ups to market leaders, the participants on site in Karlsruhe will include manufacturers, dealers, service providers and associations. Industry giants such as Humanelektronik, Meyra, Paravan, Permobil and Wellspect HealthCare will present their latest developments in rehabilitation, orthopaedic and medical technology. Product premieres as well as numerous innovations and further developments are expected. The background for this strong participation is twofold: a high proportion of manufacturers (circa 50 percent) and the fact that no trade fairs for this industry have taken place during the past two years.
Marketplaces offer an overview of relevant themes
Eleven thematic marketplaces bring together experts and the community depending on their specific interests. For example, the Mobility and Everyday Aids Marketplace covers the entire spectrum from wheelchairs and walking aids, through orthopaedic aids and communication aids, to transfer and lifting aids and exoskeletons. REHAB Karlsruhe is the first port of call for many trade and private visitors, especially for people who are interested in high-quality mobility aids and children’s aids manufactured in Germany and elsewhere in Europe.
