NeuornUP at OTAUS

NeuronUP participates this week in the Australian virtual congress OTAUS 2021, the most important scientific conference in Australia for occupational therapists. The Spanish company will exhibit its rehabilitation and cognitive stimulation web platform with the aim of expanding its presence in the Australian country.

The OTA national congress is an opportunity for everyone working in occupational therapy in Australia to meet: clinicians, managers, students and academics, etc. NeuronUP will take advantage of this space to present its tool and make it known among professionals in the field of occupational therapy.

This year, in its 29th edition, the main theme of the congress is “Inspired Insights for Brighter Futures”. This theme highlights the changing context in which the profession is practicing. It also recognizes that the methods that exist in the profession can positively influence the future in all areas of occupational therapy practice.
