Research group Rehabilitation and Technology

The Rehabilitation research group’s most important objective is to stimulate the social participation and quality of life of people with a physical disability or chronic illness. The research group has entered into a partnership with Sophia Revalidatie. It conducts research and launches innovative projects related to participation and quality of life. Participation, (adapted) movement & sports and e-rehabilitation are three important and connected lines of research.

About the research group

In principle, the research group focuses on all rehabilitation target groups, but the ‘participation’ sub-area focuses on children and young people with an acquired brain injury. She is also explicitly involved in devising and carrying out activities.

The research group wants to use research, innovation and knowledge circulation to contribute to targeted improvements and changes in care options and professional training programmes. It draws the attention of higher education students to rehabilitation and has become a regional knowledge and expertise centre with national and international partners.
