Call For Papers

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


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.
