Hospital Los Madroños
Hospital Los Madroños is a general medical-surgical hospital located in the west of the Autonomous Community of Madrid. The hospital includes an advanced neurorehabilitation unit that treats, among others, stroke patients and patients with spinal cord injury. Hospital Los Madroños has recently created the Center for Clinical Neuroscience whose activity will include, in addition to the treatment of patients, research, innovation, training-teaching and the dissemination of emerging technologies in the field of neurorehabilitation. Hospital Los Madroños participates in national and international research projects such as Eurobench for the standardization of robotic systems for gait rehabilitation.

Northwestern University: Department of Physical Therapy and Movement Sciences
The department of Physical Therapy and Movement Sciences (PTHM) at Northwestern University, is the oldest Physical Therapy educational program in the US, and is well known for its engineering and technology-oriented approach to the training of Doctors in Physical Therapy DPT, PhD as well as dual degree students (e.g., DPT/PhD in engineering) in the area of movement and rehabilitation sciences. Our department was the first in the world to combine doctoral training in physical therapy with PhD training in engineering. Also, PTHMS is among the first in exploring the realization of DPT training combined with a Master’s in prosthetics and orthotics. Another differentiator that positions us well, compared to other research-intensive programs in PT, is the integration of our DPT with an MS in Public Health in only a three-year time period. Our educational DPT and PhD programs also emphasize the use of the latest technologies in the delivery of course content.
Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, formerly the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC), is the global leader in physical medicine and rehabilitation for adults and children with the most severe, complex conditions — from traumatic brain and spinal cord injury to stroke, amputation and cancer-related impairment. Shirley Ryan AbilityLab expands and accelerates leadership in the field that began at RIC in 1953 — its care and research designated the “No. 1 Rehabilitation Hospital in America” by U.S. News & World Report every year since 1991. Upon opening in March 2017, the $550 million, 1.2-million-square-foot Shirley Ryan AbilityLab became the first-ever “translational” research hospital in which clinicians, scientists, innovators and technologists work together in the same space, surrounding patients, discovering new approaches and applying (or “translating”) research in real time. This unique model enables patients to have 24/7 access to the brightest minds, the latest research and the best opportunity for recovery. For more information, go to sralab.org.
Technaid is a Spanish company specialized in developing robotic assistive systems to help improve people’s lives. We currently focus on two areas: First, we manufacture inertial technology devices: from motion sensors to systems that capture and analyze human biomechanics. Second, we develop robotic exoskeletons for research in mobility rehabilitation and in robotic control applied to human biomechanics. Furthermore we partner with national and international research centers and use the resulting state-of-the-art know-how to manufacture exclusive products and make them commercially available with a short go-to-market span.
