September 25 - September 28

re-integration into physical work exoskeleton event 2024

Announcing the Special Topic at REHACARE 2024! This will be a one day symposium and a four-day Special Topic Area in Hall 1. “Re-Integration into Physical Work with Physical Assist – What is the Need Gap?” is an initiative by:

  • Fraunhofer IPA & Universität Stuttgart IFF
  • Wearable Robotics Association, WearRA
  • In collaboration with LWL Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe

The one day symposium will focus on reintegration of people with prior injuries back into physical work (work that is not necessarily physically challenges but requires the ability to reach controls and control machinery). What is the current status and options available. What ware patient’s needs and solutions on the market?


  • General overview and path to reintegration by LWL
  • The need gap and ways forward in Germany by Fraunhofer IPA
  • Specific needs and solutions for workers with spinal cord injuries and/or wheel chair users by Pro Active “the Lift Solution”
  • Specific needs and solutions for those with severe back pain by HUNIC Gmbh, maker of the back-assist exosuits for lifting tasks.
  • Special considerations for workers with amputations and prosthetic legs

The goal of the symposium is to highlight the needs and show the state of the art in innovative solutions. For example, the Pro Active Wheel Chair Lift has been used successfully to operate CNC Machining Work Stations. Expect exoskeleton & exosuit examples of return to work from HUNIC and IUVO.
