RehabWeek 2019 in Toronto certainly didn’t disappoint. It was an intense 4 days of demonstrating our latest products in virtual rehabilitation to clinicians and researchers from all over the world and the feedback was simply amazing. It was exciting to see that rehabilitation continues to push forward with new ways of improving care with the assistance of technology but always with the aim of bettering the quality of life of those who need it most.
Some of the highlights included showing our latest solutions for treating Hemispatial Neglect based on our collaboration with Dr Stephanie Rossit from the University of East Anglia, our upcoming product for treating aphasia in which we’re collaborating with Dr Holly Robson, Dr Rachel McCrindle and Dr Maitreyee Wairagkar from the University of Reading.
We also showed the ActivArm, an affordable de-weighting arm support to help train hemiparetic limbs using videogames which is based on the work from Bev Quee from Neurotek. The response to that was incredibly positive and we already have a long list of clients ready to purchase it when we launch later in the year.
Our Fall Prevention Homekit that is based on a structured program of fall prevention activities including games and assessments really caught the eye of a lot of people who wanted to know more. We were only too happy to let them know how we plan to reduce falls in older adults by providing them with a fall prevention clinic right in their home.
We got to see some old friends like Dr David Putrino from Mount Sinai Health System who gave a really inspiring key note speech to kick off the event, Helen Hobbs from Hobbs Clinics and Jose Lopez from CEN - European Neuroscience Centre. Plus, we made a lot of new friends from different places around the world with whom we look forward to working with in the future.
Although this past edition in Toronto will be hard to beat, we’re looking forward to RehabWeek 2021 in Rotterdam where we’ll be sure to present even more new products.
