Exergames in physiotherapy

Dear Sir or Madam,

Do you have games on your phone? Games somehow manage to inspire people of all ages with ease. They awaken our ambition and are simply fun. That's why they are also being used more and more frequently in physiotherapy, including as an app for the smartphone or tablet as well. Find out how exergames influence the success of therapy in rehabilitation in our Topic of the Month.

Stay healthy!

The University Hospital Bonn is creating a solution for this problem: 3D printed models of joints and arteries are used in training. They enable physicians to recognize rheumatological diseases in ultrasound images.
