Scope: This section focuses on research and development of orthopedic, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, craniofacial, neurological, urologic and other medical technologies (including medical/surgical robotics, computer assisted technologies, medical devices, e/m-health and other medical instrumentation) that improve the prevention, diagnosis, intervention and treatment of injury or disease. It also considers technical (hardware, software) and practical aspects of rehabilitation engineering (age-related rehabilitation, blast injury rehabilitation, neurorehabilitation, functional rehabilitation) from concept to clinic and papers on improving the quality of life of patients with a disability.
