Cerebral & Neurological Rehabilitation
Serious damage to the brain, caused by craniocerebral injuries, stroke or illnesses of the central nervous system, raise countless questions. Which areas of the brain have been affected? Are any functional disabilities reversible? Which therapies are best suitable and what is the forecast? For those affected and their relatives, everything changes from one second to the next after an accident or a cerebral haemorrhage. And for doctors, therapists and carers, each patient represents a new challenge. In the meantime, medical research and technical options for rehabilitation continue to progress.
Focus on stroke, brain injuries and neurological rehabilitation
The marketplace Cerebral & Neurological Rehabilitation deals with the questions which concern people with brain damage and their relatives, and it deals with the support options for the recovery of those affected. The topical emphases of the marketplace are stroke, brain injuries and the neurological rehabilitation which, with a lot of patience, can pave the way back into the former life.
Forum for questions, exchange and new perspectives
REHAB is the platform for persons affected and relatives to enter a dialogue with doctors, carers and therapists as well as with self-help groups, service providers and product manufacturers. The marketplace Cerebral & Neurological Rehabilitation also offers valuable opportunities for networking for everyone who is looking to professionally enter this sector.
Marketplace Homecare & Nursing
Nursing in Germany currently faces major challenges. Demographic changes and an increase in the number of old people on the one hand, and a lack of specialist staff on the other, require effective, long-term solutions. Many people in need of care, and their families, want nursing to be offered in the home. How can qualified outpatient nursing and coordinated home intensive care be provided? How can relatives help and how can they be supported in providing care at home? What funding options are there, and what rights to funding do individual patients have?
Global questions and specific answers
REHAB offers a space for questions and discussion as well as for the presentation of innovative solutions, products and services for specific needs. At the marketplace Homecare and Nursing, providers, specialists, decision-makers and care experts, people in need of care and their relatives can meet to obtain information about the latest trends and developments and talk to each other.
Care in the home and intensive home care now and in the future
The marketplace Homecare and Nursing presents the wide variety of aids and support on offer, which are available to everyone involved in home care. As well as the focus on specific practical matters, it also looks at the future of nursing and the technical progress that has been made in facilitating greater autonomy and a better quality of life for people in need of care.
Marketplace Mobility & Daily Living Aids
These aids help to master every-day life independently, offer more security, support therapies and help to prevent secondary damages while providing significant relief to carers as well: Daily living aids for restricted people are indispensable in many areas. The marketplace Mobility & Daily Living Aids offers visitors an overview of the broad spectrum of available auxiliary means for people with disabilities and chronic illnesses.
Mobility aids for all kinds of conditions
Wheelchairs and walking aids are two important emphases at the marketplace Mobility & Daily Living Aids. Notable industry companies as well as small, specialised providers will present their various models at REHAB. Users will be able to test-drive several devices on a test track with different floor conditions to find out whether their individual needs will be met.
Orthopaedic aids, communication and transfer aids
Another focal point of the marketplace Mobility & Daily Living Aids are orthopaedic aids which can compensate for physical disabilities and enable increased self-reliance. The current developments regarding communication aids for people with functional restrictions represent yet another exciting topic. For carers especially, transfer and lifting aids will be of interest as they significantly facilitate the care for disabled people in need of care on a daily level.
Exoskeletons in modern rehabilitation
The newest achievements in rehabilitation robotics for people with palsy are promising as well. Representatives of innovative companies from the industry will be available to explain new opportunities to visitors.
Marketplace Therapy & Pratice
People with physical and mental disabilities can take advantage of many therapies and rehabilitation offers which may reduce their symptoms and promote their recovery. Especially hospitals with outpatient and stationary centres for medical care for the disabled and specialised rehabilitation centres can meet the needs of people with disabilities. In addition to modern and customised treatment methods, suitable therapy devices are also crucial to possible restore lost functions and abilities.
Individual therapies for disabled people
The marketplace Therapy & Practice at REHAB offers visitors the opportunity of gathering information about the most important forms of therapy and aids. Devices for motion therapy are one of the most important cornerstones. Providers and manufacturers will introduce themselves and are available for discussion with interested parties from therapeutic practice, hospitals and institutions for rehabilitation as well as with patients, relatives and representatives of self-help organisation.
Need for action in the therapy of disabled people
Even if progressing inclusion provides more and more answers to the questions and requirements of physically and mentally handicapped people, the need for action remains quite big. Many hospitals are not yet adequately prepared for treating handicapped people or patients with serious multiple disabilities. REHAB will be the platform to discuss that as well as related topics, such as structural requirements, additional needs for time, care and assistance as well as financing options for a better care of disabled people in hospital.
