Robotic technologies in rehabilitation - A practical workshop on the application of the Lokomat and Armeo robotic orthoses

Pre-Conference Workshop Details

Time: 1.30 pm – 5.00 pm
Cost: $195 (Member) | $250 (Non-Member) 
Max capacity: 25 delegates

This session is sponsored by:

Women’s and Children’s Hospital - Centre for Robotics and Innovation
72 Kind William Road, North Adelaide (about a 10 minute walk from the Conference Venue)

This workshop will introduce the participant to the potential for robotic technologies to assist in the rehabilitation of their patients with neurological disability. There is a major practical component with some participants able to access the robotic technologies to assist in understanding their application. This will include sessions with two robotic orthoses – the Lokomat and the Armeo. Insights into the potential benefits of robotic technologies, their integration into a clinical service and potential research focus areas will be covered in a series of short presentations. Practical demonstrations and the ability to engage in an interactive setting will be the focus of the workshop.

Head of Research, Women’s and Children’s Hospital: A/Professor Ray Russo
Mr Chris Innes-Wong
