From 16th to 18th May 2012, the entire orthopaedics and rehabilitation technology trade will meet on the Leipzig fairground. Exhibitors from Germany and abroad will present themselves in the fair halls at the globally leading trade show ORTHOPÄDIE + REHA-TECHNIK.

The comprehensive congress programme will already start on Tuesday, 15th May with top-notch speakers on various subjects. More than 300 experts will present up-to-date findings from science and practical work in seven keynotes and 36 subject blocks.

For the first time, there will be an event specifically created for trainees – the Jugend.Akademie Technische Orthopädie (youth academy for technical orthopaedics). The apprentices will be offered a comprehensive programme which is supposed to open up new perspectives and provide networking opportunities. Another new event is a special presentation with a workshop on individual rehabilitation technology.

After the successful start in 2010, the young entrepreneur meeting and the special show “Medical & healthcare supplies stores– a model for the future?” will be continued in 2012. The Campus is a joint stand and event where insitutions from science and research present themselves and the Forum International serves as an international contact network.
