14th Vienna International Workshop on Functional Electrical Stimulation

Sep 27 - 30, 2022| Innsbruck, Austria

We are happy to announce, that the “14th Vienna International Workshop on Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES)” will be an integral part of the BMT2022. Similar to the successful 11th Workshop in Graz, held in cooperation with the Austrian Society for Biomedical Engineering, again registered participants are free to join all presentations and sessions.

For the organization of the FES-Workshop, we stick to our tradition of avoiding parallel sessions.
