It is my honor that I can present the keynote address as the chair of IBRC 2015, in which I emphasizes that the restructuring of the rehabilitation medicine is indispensable.
I present about the process which was the difficulty of us till today like the greeting of a BIOPHILIA special edition.

Although this special issue is re-printing papers, there is a big meaning for the advanced age disabled person keeping lives independently in the world, and I share it with you, readers.

I hope that PubMed application is permitted with the special number publication, and also that the registration will be permitted.
The permission leads also to apply not only to PubMed publishing but also an application to the Web of Science.

That is, the BIOPHILAI journal which we started develops as human beings' property, and becomes an opportunity to contribute greatly.
I indicate the following matters in this foreword in order to clarify the importance of this special number and the next;
i) How do advanced doctors and us consider rehabilitation medicine?
ii) What reactions have been shown by some persons concerned about the Rehabilitation Medicine restructuring?
iii) How is the social situation changing in relation to reactions? and
iv) How is the recognition of the society related to our presentation?

There is a limitation of the space in a foreword, therefore please read our printed articles for detail.
