Short description

A REHAB-LAB is a fully integrated FabLab in a rehabilitation or a medico-social organisation, where patients create their own assistive devices using 3D printing. The idea behind the solution is to involve patients with disability into their rehabilitation process by designing devices which are also with higher specification responding to the personal needs.
