Welcome to REHAB 2017

The trade fair for improved quality of life

REHAB Karlsruhe has been one of the world’s biggest and most significant trade fairs that concentrates on rehabilitation, therapy, care and inclusion since 1980. Specialists from all over Germany and the neighbouring countries come to Karlsruhe every two years to bring themselves up to date with the latest trends in rehabilitation technology, innovations in the assistive aids industry and new therapeutic options as well as to take advantage of further training opportunities.

As a platform for the exchange of information and ideas between manufacturers, medical and healthcare supply retailers, therapists, medical professionals, nursing and care professionals, service providers and associations as well as for people with disabilities and their carers, REHAB is a firm fixture in the industry’s calendar of events.
