Wheelchairs with customer fit

The circumstances in which people are provided with wheelchairs are highly various and individual. OTWorld 2018 will be providing an overview of rehabilitation technology in expert patient care.

Over the past few years the trade show has been valuably extended by the “Transparent Workshop.” While the focus has been on the medical care of children, and especially the production of seat support orthoses, the Technical Forum for Rehabilitation 2018 will be considering various indication-related care processes for adults.

Specially constructed electrical wheelchairs, multifunctionality or special sizes – rehabilitation technology must adapt itself to every need. The range of patient care is enormous. For OTWorld leading companies have come together in the rehabilitation technology working group to demonstrate their expertise in rehabilitation technology.

Every day on the stage at the Technical Forum for Rehabilitation, on the exhibition area occupied by the German Association of Orthopaedic Technology (Bundesinnungsverband für Orthopädie-Technik), presentations will spotlight processes of holistic wheelchair provision for the individual patient. The whole patient-care team will be involved in the process.

Focal points of the presentations

  • Constructing special electric wheelchairs, environmental control
  • Patients with complex medical-care models
  • Patients with MS, ALS, auto-immune diseases
  • Special sizes
  • geriatric patients, care of patients
  • Legal questions
