*REHAB 2013: 1st Workshop on ICTs for improving Patients Rehabilitation
Research Techniques*
*Link:* http://www.rehab-workshop.org/  *Place: *Venice, Italy, 5 May, 2013
7th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for
Healthcare (PrevasiveHealth <http://pervasivehealth.org/>)

*

*SCOPE*
During the last few years, there has been increasing interest in the
application of Virtual Reality and Information and Communication
Technologies (ICTs), in the field of rehabilitation, with clinical results
that prove their effectiveness. The virtual reality is being an
increasingly used method in physical rehabilitation, allowing
individualized treatments, as to facilitate learning motivation, to
finally, provides patients pleasant and enjoyable homework exercises. This
is can be done, for example, by applying the use of Nintendo Wii Balance
Board, a low-cost visual biofeedback systems, and the implementation of
programs for improving the patients balance.


*OBJECTIVE*
This workshop invites authors to submit contributions on concepts Virtual
Rehabilitation Discussion, applications, techniques or environments where
interaction design play a central role by improving the rehabilitation
process at all levels.

*TOPICS OF INTEREST, Key issues in this workshop will focus on (but are not
limited to):*

   - Virtual and enhanced environments
   - Motor rehabilitation
   - Neuroimaging in rehabilitation
   - Virtual rehabilitation
   - Clinical assessment
