Welcome to 2017! Wishing you all a happy, healthy and joyful year ahead!
The new year started off great for Immersive Rehab with exciting prospects on the Research & Development front for the validation of our VR Physical/Neuro-rehabilitation Platform in a clinical setting, with new collaborations in place with various hospitals/rehab centres and academics at Imperial College London and Strathclyde University in Glasgow.
More patient trials have been planned within stroke, spinal cord injury and musculoskeletal rehabilitation units. For the next trial end of next week, I will be heading over to Neurokinex in Gatwick again to work with the therapist team and with Paralympic athlete David Smith. David is currently working with the Neurokinex team on his post-surgery rehabilitation. It is incredibly valuable and insightful to work with and learn from the amazing therapists at Neurokinex and their patients on advancing spinal cord injury rehabilitation practices.
Immersive Rehab will also be exhibiting and speaking at several events in 2017. Please come say hi if you are planning to pass by any of the events. We will be:
- Exhibiting at Fast Stream Conference 2017 on 2-3 February 2017 in London
- Speaking at VR World Congress on 11-13 April 2017 in Bristol
- Exhibiting and Speaking at the Live Demo Stage at COPA SERIES 2017, Europe’s leading event for rehabilitation professionals on 7-8 June 2017 in London

As a STEM advocate, I am personally very passionate about promoting science and technology with the younger generation. As such, I have been invited to give a workshop about using Virtual Reality in Healthcare in a primary school in London during the STEM Week in February 2017. Public engagement and outreach is key in all the work we do in technology and science, so I cannot be more excited to be part of the kids’ science & technology week and hope to teach them more about STEM.
More updates to follow in the coming weeks.
Have a great start of the year and may it be a successful one on all levels.
All the best,
Isabel, Founder & CEO
