Learn as a rehabilitation professional in a rewarding educational programme with an innovative approach taking the advantage of a concrete perspective of employment in Robotics Rehabilitation.

The wide spectrum of employment in Rehabilitation of Robotics and New Technologies is a concrete reality: unfortunately proper programs with sufficient know-how are sparse and skills needed to appropriately apply these devices are usually achieved “on the field” by rehabilitation professionals without any prior specific education.

The actual gap is mostly educational and there is a great need to enhance training and knowledge for Physicians.

Robotic Committee of the European Society of PRM (ESPRM) promotes an innovative approach based on a summer school (Robotic Rehabilitation Summer School-R2S2) with the main goals to enhance scientific information and foster education in these advanced applications: the educational programme would be developed in the frame of the theoretical knowledge and evidence-based approach in connection with growing clinical experiences realized by PRM specialists all over the Europe: a broad functional and practical approach in relation to different clinical matters in Rehabilitation.

The school will be under the organisation of RT Committee under the ausices of ESPRM, UEMS PRM Section & Board and IISART. The international faculty for theoretical and practical activities will be present during the School and by the on-line educational activity by the creation of a specific European Robotic School WebSite.The project aims to realize similar future editions in different advanced rehabilitation centres spread all over Europe in cooperation with national societies.
