Dear fellows and friends,
The International Biophilia Academy Rehabilitation Conference – IBR(A)C – has now reached to its 16th Edition, that will be held on the 14th of June, 2019, in Okayama, Japan.
In my professional and academic positions (PRM, with special focus on NeuroRehabilitation, and repetively, Gerontology & Geriatrics – including: Honorary Executive President/ Co-Founder of the Romanian Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine & Balneoclimatology; President/ Co-Founder of the Romanian Society for NeuroRehabilitation), I herein warmly welcome this Conference and its very actual topics, i.e. ”Preparation of the International Standardization on Motivative Exercise Enforcement” and as well, the comprehensive, multimodal (bio-/medical and socio-economic – including at community-primary level) approach of a subject matter that becomes more and more important as the accelerated demographic aging process continues: the appearance, in different parts of the world, of a ”super-Aged Society”, resulting in a growing proportion of the elderly – prone to multi-morbidity, among which neural-motor/ sensorial-/ psycho-cognitive/ communicational, disorders, are some of the most severe impairments and diabilities, but/and, at the same time, being targets for (neuro-) rehabilitative/ assistive/ cares, endeavors.
Thereby, I wish great success to the 16th IBRC !
