ISPO World Congress 2019 in the Land of the Rising Sun

Asia building on "Basics to Bionics"

After six years away, the World Congress of the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics' (ISPO) will again be hosted in Asia, once again providing a unique opportunity for global exchange in the field of assistive tehnology in the region. The venue is Kobe, Japan. Japan is the world's second largest market for medical products and services. The Japanese healthcare system is considered highly innovative but depends heavily on imports (49 per cent), which also includes orthopaedic aids such as prostheses and orthoses. For four days, from 5th to 8th October, Kobe will become a centre for international experts who, under the slogan of "Basics to Bionics", will reflect the breadth of the rehabilitation field and assistive technology. Exhibitors from all over the world, including many market leaders, will present their products and services with a special focus on the emerging South-east Asian markets. Delegates from more than 100 countries, including Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan, as well as emerging countries such as Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia and Malaysia, are expected.
