Conferencia Paolo Meriggi (Instituto San Carlos, Milan): El próximo viernes 29 de mayo de 2015, el profesor D. Meriggi impartirá una conferencia invitada titulada: “Toward a Novel Approach in Pediatric Rehabilitation: the Computer Assisted Rehabilitation (CARE) Lab”.
Abstract: In the recent years there has been a growing interest in using advanced technology solutions in rehabilitation, although the effectiveness of such a widespread use is still under discussion. It seems that this "technology push" to the wide diffusion of different type of systems and devices (from videogame based consoles to sophisticated VR or robotic systems), not always coped with clear and real rehabilitation needs or goals defined by operators.
After few years of experience in the field, thanks to a strong collaboration between clinicians and technologists in our center in Milano, we have clearly perceived the need of building a Lab dedicated to the design, development/integration and assessment of new technological solutions in rehabilitation, with a specific focus on pediatric one. The talk is then about the guidelines and projects that represent the foundations of the CARE Lab, the lab itself and its features, and its perspectives, in the landscape of what could become a novel approach to (pediatric) rehabilitation.
