4th Workshop on ICTs for improving Patients Rehabilitation Research Techniques (REHAB 2016)
http://rehab-workshop.org/

Lisbon, Portugal
13-14 October 2016

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.
