IFESS 2018

Dear Colleagues

It is a pleasure for us to announce the

22nd Annual IFESS Conference 2018: “Enhancing quality of life through electrical stimulation technology”

held at the

Swiss Paraplegic-Centre Nottwil
Guido A. Zäch Str. 1, 6207 Nottwil, Switzerland

from
29th-31st August 2018 (Pre-conference workshop 28th August)

Structural and functional impairment can reduce the participation of social life. Having technologies based on electrical stimulation enables people with impairment to enlarge their possibility of participation and thus their quality of life.

The conference will focus on motor- learning with FES for the upper and lower extremities, transcutaneous spinal cord stimulation, implantable systems, stimulation of denervated muscles, pain and technologies.

At the same time the Tetrahand World Congress will take place from the 28th to the 31st of August 2018. „adding quality to life“ (Tetrahand World Congress 2018 website)
