Now in its 8th year, this symposium is the largest medical and scientific conference specific to Regenerative Rehabilitation in the world.

SYMPOSIUM OUTCOMES

  • Discover integrated methods to enhance tissue healing and regeneration through the use of mechanotransduction and applied biophysics, and how these approaches relate to the application of clinically available rehabilitation approaches.
  • Understand the principles of regenerative medicine and how rehabilitation interfaces with these state-of-the-art technologies for optimal patient recovery.
  • Participate in novel interactions with clinicians, researchers and therapists through formal and informal networking activities.

As we approach a new era of technological advancements, regenerative medicine scientists must work closely with rehabilitation specialists in the development of clinical protocols to optimize functional recovery. To date, there have been few opportunities for regenerative biologists to be exposed to protocols and methodologies commonly employed in the clinic by rehabilitation professionals, protocols which serve as potent stimuli to drive functional tissue restoration. Nor are most rehabilitation scientists and clinicians exposed to the many advances in the field of regenerative medicine. There is, therefore, a great need to increase the interaction of individuals across the fields of rehabilitative and regenerative medicine such that, as technologies are developed and as understanding of regenerative biology progresses, advances may be smoothly and efficiently translated to the clinic.

A better understanding of the synergistic effect of rehabilitation approaches and applied biophysics with regenerative medicine technologies has the potential to propel the translation of regenerative technologies into functionally relevant treatment interventions for a host of pathologies which will, in turn, transform the future of rehabilitative healthcare.
