Re-Integration Into Physical Work Symposium at REHACARE 2024

Announcing the Special Topic at REHACARE 2024 September 25 – September 28! 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 reintegrating people with prior injuries back into physical work (work that is not necessarily physically challenging but requires the ability to reach controls and control machinery). What is the current status and options available? What are the 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 wheelchair 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 symposium aims 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.
