Neuromuscular disease is a disorder that affects the peripheral nervous system. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are injuries or pain in the human musculoskeletal system. Cardiovascular disease generally refers to conditions that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels and heart's muscle, valves or rhythm problems. All those conditions affect the human functions.
Physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) is a branch of medicine concerning with the study of comprehensive management of disabilities arising from disease or injury of the neuro – musculo – skeletal and cardio – pulmonary systems and bio – psycho – socio disruptions concomitant with them. The goal of PM&R programs is to maintain human function and independent life.
Regenerative medicine is a branch of translational research in tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the "process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function". This field holds the promise of engineering damaged tissues and organs by stimulating the body's own repair mechanisms to functionally heal previously irreparable tissues or organs.
This international symposium aims to discuss about the rules of regenerative medicine regarding basic bioscience in human function and how to apply it in solving the problems of functional capacity related to the terms of body structures, body functions, activites and participation.
