24th Annual Conference of International Functional Electrical Stimulation Society
ROVINJ; September 9-12, 2020.


Annual Conferences of the IFESS are organized to promote the awareness, knowledge, and understanding of both electrical stimulation technologies and their uses. The IFESS bridges research, application, and healthcare to enhance the quality of life through advocacy, education, and facilitation of inter-professional collaborations.
The IFESS meetings traditionally include lectures, oral, and poster presentations and exhibitors in the following areas: FES for upper and lower extremities, spinal cord stimulation, breathing-coughing and airway management, stimulation of denervated muscles, pain, urology, fitness and cardio-vascular system, implantable systems, technologies, clinical results of using FES, quality of life with FES, neurorehabilitation, hybrid systems (FES and robots), and BCI and FES
The XXIV Annual Conference will run in parallel with the Summer School: Wearable robotics for rehabilitation and the XI External Control of Human Extremities Meeting. The contents of the two other activities complement the IFESS event; hence, the participants will benefit in the whole five days long event.
