REHAB 2014
           2nd Workshop on ICTs for improving Patients Rehabilitation Research Techniques
May 20-23, 2014 - Oldenburg, Germany
8th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare 
Past editions: 20062008 - 2009 - 2010 - 2011 - 2012 - 2013

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.
