i-CREATe 2008 aims to provide a previously lacking platform to address current and future developments in the areas of Rehabilitation Engineering (RE) and Assistive Technology (AT).

Into its second successful showing, i-CREATe 2008 provides direct access to the Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology market in ASIA. Meet leaders from various fields of AT practice, service delivery, research & development funding agencies and public policy makers, AT/RE researchers, therapist and medical personnel and more.

We are very excited to launch the Student Design Challenge (SDC) for i-CREATe 2008. This year's problem will challenge students to apply their creativity to designing an experience in the area of health and fitness. It is our hope we can incorporated the challenge into future academic curriculum. We invite design programs in universities and colleges from around the world, as well as individual student teams, to consider taking part in this competition.

i-CREATe 2008 also offers opportunities for exhibitors to market their latest rehabilitation and assistive equipments, technological innovations, product launches and provides an excellent platform for international vendors to establish a presence or to seek out relevant business contacts or networks in the ASIA region.
