REHACARE 2012 - Report on Assistive Systems

Leading an independent life – something that is not easy for many people. But people with a physical or mental disability are often faced with so many more obstacles making a so-called normal life nearly impossible without some help. And the development of these types of aids is progressing - as seen at the Paralympic Games in London, prostheses, ortheses and wheelchairs, for example, are now high-tech. But there is also a lot going on in other areas - all of it aiming towards providing disabled people with a little bit of freedom.
