Goals and Objectives

  • Increase the quality of evidence for assessment methods and rehabilitation interventions in people across the lifespan (pediatric, adult, and geriatric populations) and, in particular, vulnerable groups.

  • Advance the understanding of underlying therapeutic and physiological mechanisms related to rehabilitation interventions.

  • Improve the short- and long-term outcomes in patients with acute and chronic conditions, such as back and neck pain, neuropathies, tendinopathies, persistent pain and sport-related injuries as well as muscle tone disorders, stroke and spinal deformities.

  • Enhance community-based research and study the impact of systemic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, etc. on the nervous and musculoskeletal systems

  • Promote interdisciplinary collaboration in rehabilitation research, with a particular emphasis on community-based practice.

  • Identify biomarkers associated with specific disorders that would guide prescription of rehabilitation interventions or act as prognostic indicators.

  • Advance the use of assistive technologies and 3-D motion analysis in rehabilitation science.

  • Advance the use of telehealth in rehabilitation assessment, delivery, and adherence monitoring.
