The Society’s Main Goal
To contribute to and promote collaborative research in the areas of robotics and advanced technologies as applied to healthcare for the purposes of rehabilitation, therapy and functional independence.
History of the ICORR
The International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics (ICORR), started in 1990 as part of RESNA and took place in Delaware (USA). From that time, every 2 years, the ICORR conferences are organized to promote robotics and assistive technology for rehabilitation. ICORR conferences have taken place in the following locations:
1990: Alfred I. duPont Institute, Wilmington, Delaware, USA
1991: Georgia Tech University, Atlanta, GA, USA
1992: University of Keele, Staffordshire, UK
1994: Alfred I. duPont Institute, Wilmington, Delaware, USA
1997: Bath Institute of Medical Engineering at the University of Bath, UK
1999: Stanford University, Stanford, California, USA
2001: INT/INSERM, Evry (near Paris), France
2003: Korea Advanced Institute of Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, Republic of Korea
2005: The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and Northwestern University, Chicago, IL, USA
2007: Noordwijk, the Netherlands
2009: Kyoto, Japan
2011: Zurich, Switzerland
2013: Seattle, Washington, USA
2017: London, UK
