Call For Papers

3rd Workshop on ICTs for improving Patients Rehabilitation Research Techniques.
REHAB 2015 (, which will be organized between the 01st-02nd of October 2015, in University Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologías, Lisbon, Portugal


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.

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.

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
Cognitive rehabilitation
Communication and language
Ambisonics and audio environments
Haptic devices
Sensory impairment
Medical systems
Input devices, sensors and actuators
Multi-user systems for user interaction
Computer access
Virtual humans
Balance, posture and mobility
Communications aids
Tools for architectural/CAD design
Product design, testing and prototyping
