Goals and Objectives

  1. 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.
  2. Advance the understanding of underlying therapeutic and physiological mechanisms related to rehabilitation interventions.
  3. 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. 
  4. Enhance community-based research and study the impact of systemic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, etc. on the nervous and musculoskeletal systems
  5. Promote interdisciplinary collaboration in rehabilitation research, with a particular emphasis on community-based practice.
  6. Identify biomarkers associated with specific disorders that would guide prescription of rehabilitation interventions or act as prognostic indicators.
  7. Advance the use of assistive technologies and 3-D motion analysis in rehabilitation science.
  8. Advance the use of telehealth in rehabilitation assessment, delivery, and adherence monitoring.
