Santo Stefano Rehabilitation and Kos Group are working for the organization and management as in previous edition.
IISART International Industry Society for Advanced Rehabilitation technology supports the international diffusion.

This 2021 edition will focus on the themes of pediatric rehabilitation activities with the use of technologically advanced and robotic equipment and it will allow the interpretation of very innovative experiences in this sector, in order to underline the essential role of the figure of the PRM specialist also in this very important clinical field.

The school will be online, with six sessions set up for educational activities and with a seventh session, set up to present the European Robotic Rehabilitation Community, a community born alongside and for merit of the activities of the school itself, which has the objective of carrying out the didactic activities in clinical comparison and research in this area.
All the activities will be in English and will include, as always, educational aspects of theoretical and practical content made in prerecorded and online video materials (which will then be accessible on the school website), in any case for the participants to interact with the teachers.

The event will be virtual on the GoToWebinar platform.
