REHABILITATION ROBOTICS SCHOOL
Who We Are
SCHOOL CONCEPT AND VISION
The wide spectrum of employment in PRM (Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine) of Robotics and New Technologies is a concrete reality, but PRM training Centres offering proper programs are sparse at national and international level and skills needed to appropriately apply robotics are usually achieved “on the field” by rehabilitation professionals without any prior specific education.
The inter-professional cooperation, so strongly needed in research and clinical activities, is very weak in Health facilities and between medical professionals with engineers and other ICT experts.
The actual gap is mostly educational and there is a great need to enhance training and knowledges for PRM physicians (and the same for Physiotherapists, Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Orthotics and Engineers).
The educational programme is developed in the frame of the theoretical knowledge and evidence-based approach provided by recent researches indications and international publications, while exploiting the technical support of IISART and other Companies which carry out research and productions in this field in connection with growing technical and clinical experiences realized all over the Europe.

What We Do
SCHOOL WEBSITE MISSION
The purpose of the School is to harmonize and increase the level of knowledge concerning the use of robotics in rehabilitation, for PRM physicians (and if possible all rehabilitation professionals) to enhance collaboration, communication and sharing, both on a clinical and research basis.
Students will be able at the end of the Sessions to plan and manage routinely and daily therapies integrating robotics and new technologies; they will have the basis for financial or organizational issues for such therapies and, finally, they will be able to design and realize proper research trials aimed at assessing the efficacy, effectiveness and efficiency of robotic rehabilitation. School Courses are open to European PRM physicians and students.
It is a fundamental tool to maintain and increase all over the year and places the activity:
Before School/On Line
Educational material (slides packages, webinars etc) will be available on-line from 2 months before practical session for all enrolled students.
All educational materials will be available online for all students; a “meet the experts” service will be available also for six months after the end of the School/On-Site.
3° European R2S2 Robotic Rehabilitation Summer School
13-14-15/20-21-22/27 September 2021. VIRTUAL.
Pediatric rehabilitation activities with the use of technologically advanced and robotic equipment.APPLY NOW
I found extremely attractive and useful the method of teaching used in the ER2School: classes explaining the use and concepts and researches about robots and thei application, then the tour visiting patients using the same kind of robots (important and critical part!), and during the afternoon the possibility to try and test the robots by ourself.
The level of the speakers was very high and it was useful to talk even with the producers (for technical details). It was useful having a small group of partecipants, then split in smaller groups for the work-on activities.
It has been very interesting and inspiring days. Great program and great to be able to dscuss with other partecipants during the nice dinners.
Thanks for this big effort in organizing this meeting. I found it very interesting, useful and very well organized.
It was very useful to try all devices. Wonderful possibility to communicate with other specialities like bioengineers, p.r.m. doctors and phisioteraphists.
Thank you for organizing the school. It was a very rich program, All the presenters as well as the staff members were very dedicated to the school. The infomation was comprehensive. I did not expect to see such abundance of robots. The school organization was perfect.
I really enjoyed how the theoretical aspects harmonised perfectly with the practical aspects. I had a lot of take home messages from the speakers, who were a great humans to meet.
Practical part of the course was very helpful. It was great to be able to try the robots by ourselves. Also to have the chance to talk to therapists (all very knowledgable and helpful) working with the machines. It was very helpful to have lectures available on-line.
It was very hard to work so many hours during the day but I really enjoyed it.
The schedule was intense and tightly packed. We leave the school with a lot of new ideas for clinical work as well as for research.
I've really appreciated the opportunity to meet experts in the field and practice with robotic devices.
