On March 21-22, 2019, the Second National Interdisciplinary Congress with international participation “Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine in Pediatrics: Traditions and Innovations” was held in Moscow.

The scientific program of the congress, which brought together more than 2,000 doctors, was attended by leading domestic and foreign specialists in children’s rehabilitation.

The Congress started with the section “Digital Technologies in the Service of Rehabilitation Medicine”, organized by the Pirogov Center (Chairs: O. Karpov, V. Daminov).

Presentations on virtual reality and telemedicine technologies, the use of active exoskeletons and brain-computer-interface systems were made.

The presented materials aroused high interest and fruitful discussion, which resulted in the intentions of cooperation of the Pirogov Center with several children’s centers and teams of software developers for rehabilitation in pediatrics.
