Welcome to REHACARE!

REHACARE: the biggest trade fair in its sector

REHACARE Topics

Rehabilitation

Manufacturers and service providers will be at hand with information on all facets and aspects of rehabilitation. The purpose of rehabilitation is to minimise the physical impact of a disablement or condition and thus to ensure that clients will return to an active private and working life with the help of appliances or indeed through the provision of specific services or assistance.

Prevention

Maintaining a good level of health is of interest to all of us (primary prevention). One special focus at REHACARE is on the identification of disabilities and conditions at the earliest possible stage and on providing early treatment that will either ensure healing or prevent deterioration (secondary prevention). REHACARE also highlights preventative measures and ongoing care in dealing with secondary damage (tertiary prevention).

Inclusion

Inclusion means being part of the wider community - at work, at home, through travelling, sports, recreation and cultural pursuits. The exhibitors and forums look forward to welcome you. 

Care

The area of care is gaining more and more importance in public awareness, partly due to a steady rise in the number of care patients. New models and strategies are therefore required. To provide greater transparency of the latest developments and the most recent products and services in the market, this area will be given a large amount of space at REHACARE. This comprehensive overview of rehabilitation, integration, prevention and care makes REHACARE indispensable for anyone wanting to obtain detailed information.
