We invite you to be part of this meeting of interdisciplinary experts engaged in cutting-edge research, clinical advancement, and entrepreneurial exploration. This joint congress will provide an in-depth presentation of novel technologies and clinical developments in the field of virtual reality (VR), extended reality (XR) and associated topics applied to rehabilitation. Researchers, clinicians, and technology experts will meet, share experiences, and plan for the future.

A varied program

The World Congress on Virtual Rehabilitation offers a varied and informative program including keynote presentations from leading experts, oral and poster presentations, projects in the spotlight, debate, workshops, a student mentoring lunch and a hospital visit...

Student Mentoring Event

The Mentoring Lunch is an engaging opportunity for undergraduate, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to interact with experienced researchers from academia, engage in rich discussion and ask questions on a range of topics. Example of topics that may be discussed include: Time management, Conflict resolution, Strategies to increase productivity, Writing tips, Grants writing and Work-life balance. A group of mentees will be paired with two mentors, including a senior researcher in virtual rehabilitation research. 

Wednesday, 26 June 2024, 12.30-13.45 hrs.


If you're interested to receive mentorship, please register for the lunch via the "Register for Mentoring Lunch" link in the registration form and answer some brief questions to assist in organization of the mentoring session. Spaces are limited, so register early. 

Hospital Visit

Join us for an exclusive session at the Reade Rehabilitation Center, where you are provided with a bespoke tour of cutting-edge technologies revolutionizing patient recovery. You will have demonstrations of XR-based technologies like the C-Mill, a specialized treadmill designed to enhance patients' ability to adjust their walking in response to environmental challenges like stepping locations, obstacles, and irregular surfaces; the Interactive Walkway (IWW), a 10-meter path featuring lines and surfaces that guide patients through six unique walking tests, helping them navigate and interpret their surroundings with precision; and the HoloLens, an innovative Mixed Reality (MR) device that projects interactive holograms into the real world, allowing patients to engage with their environment while maintaining full situational awareness. This is a brilliant opportunity to explore real-life examples of how these technologies have been integrated into clinical rehabilitation and see how these advanced tools are improving outcomes and reshaping the future of clinical practice.

Thursday, 27 June 2024, 18.00-19.30 hrs.

Hospital visit is free for registered participants - limited to 45 persons - registration should be done through the congress registration form
