3rd World Congress of the International Society of
Physical Rehabilitation and Medicine – ISPRM
(April 10-15, 2005, São Paulo, Brazil)
The 3rd World Congress of the International Society of
Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine – ISPRM will reflect the evolving
tradition of our organization and the expectation of the physician. We
shall have the opportunity to hear from doctors and scientists who are
internationally acclaimed as the most qualified to speak about the
tremendous advances taking place in the treatment and care of people
At the same time, they will help us look to the future as we reach new
technologies for the prevention and treatment of the most frequent
conditions in our speciality.
We received around one thousand scientific abstracts, and most of these
were accepted for oral and poster presentation.
Although in general papers presented orally are those that achieved the
highest rank, examinators’ consensus, homogeneity of the topic and
author’s preference regarding type of presentation were other criteria
for the allotment of papers to oral or poster presentation.
Thank you for your contribution to our Scientific Program.
