2014 SUMMER SCHOOL ON NEUROREHABILITATION

MEETING CLINICAL AND PATIENT NEEDS AND EXPECTATIONS

Baiona,  (Spain)

September 14-19

Dear colleagues,



A gentle reminder about the 4th SUMMER SCHOOL ON NEUROREHABILITATION
(SSNR2014) that will take place in Baiona (Spain) from September 14 to 19
of 2014.



Research about the assessment and management of recovery after neural
damage is a constantly evolving area that today requires an early
convergence of clinical and technical perspectives. This is why the
SSNR2014 "Meeting Clinical and Patient Needs and Expectations" aims to
provide in depth education on advanced procedures for neurorehabilitation
of motor dysfunction following stroke, spinal cord injury, and cerebral
palsy, covering practical applications based on innovative neuroprosthetic
systems. *This edition will have a workshop dedicated to robotics in
rehabilitation. New actuators, control paradigms, and applications will be
discussed. Furthermore, there will be several demonstrations of comercial
and non-comercial exoskeletons.*



We are looking forward to welcoming you in Baiona September 2014!

Baiona, both a tourist destination and an active fishing port, is located
in the south of the Rias Baixas region, and is protected from the open sea
by a breathtakingly beautiful bay. Its geographical location offers
natural, unsurpassable protection for fishing and leisure sailing vessels
alike. The climate is characterized by mild temperatures throughout the
year. The town's old quarter was declared an "Area of Historical and
Artistic interest" by the Galician Regional Government on March 1, 1993, to
mark the five hundredth anniversary of the arrival of The Pinta, a
caravel-type vessel used by Christopher Columbus, which arrived in Baiona
with news of the discovery of America
