China has the largest elderly population in the world and is one of the fastest aging countries in the world. During the "14th Five-Year Plan" period, China's aging population will further expand, and the proportion of the population aged 60 and above will exceed 20% of the total population, entering a moderately aging society. The impairment of motor, cognitive, sensory and other functions of the elderly due to aging or disease seriously affects the quality of life in the elderly. Compared with the accumulating rehabilitational needs, the support of the service system related to elderly rehabilitation is insufficient. The development of such institutions is unbalanced, the clinical practice remains to be strengthened, and new technologies for elderly rehabilitation are yet to be popularized and applied. In order to meet the challenges, improve the health level of the elderly throughout the life cycle, and promote the standardization, evidence-based, community-based and informatization of elderly rehabilitation, the Chinese Association of Rehabilitation Medicine and Huashan Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University will hold a forum during September 17-18, 2022. The 3rd Shanghai International Geriatric-rehabilitation Forum (IGF2022) will be held at the National Regional Medical Center (Fujian Hospital, Huashan Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University). 

This forum adopts a combination of offline meetings and online live broadcasts, focusing on the full-cycle rehabilitation of the elderly, and plans to invite experts and scholars from all over the world to discuss the standards of elderly rehabilitation, improve the elderly health service system, and promote the development of elderly rehabilitation. The forum has set up two main forums, "Geriatric Rehabilitation Comprehensive Main Forum" and "Geriatric Stroke Rehabilitation Forum"; four international special sessions, "Geriatric Rehabilitation Special Session in the United Kingdom", "Senior Rehabilitation Special Session in Japan", "Senior Rehabilitation Special Session in Australia", and "Senior Rehabilitation Special Session in the United States" ; thirteen sub-forums “Rehabilitation of Nervous System Diseases in the Aged”, “Rehabilitation of Bone and Joint Diseases in the Aged”, “Rehabilitation of Cardiopulmonary Diseases in the Aged”, “Nursing and Family Rehabilitation in the Aged”, “New Technology of Rehabilitation in the Aged”, “Hand in Hand with the Aged-Hand Rehabilitation”,”Forum on Defecation Dysfunction in the Elderly”; and held three activities: "99 Temperature - Popular Science Micro Video Contest for Elderly Rehabilitation", “Let’s Talk About Geriatric Rehabilitation",” "Geriatric rehabilitation down the nib" —Solicit outstanding contributions.” ; Six workshops: "Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation for the Elderly", "Breast Cancer Rehabilitation", "Hand Function Rehabilitation", "Swallowing Function Rehabilitation", "Musculoskeletal Function Rehabilitation", "Near Infrared Operation and Data Analysis", and "Brain Regulation".
