The research group Rehabilitation and Technology studies how technology contributes to efficient and future-proof rehabilitation care. We do this by creating, implementing and evaluation innovations for rehabilitation care, together with companies, patients and professionals. These innovations can support people's rehabilitation, for example by giving them apps to exercise on their own and to monitor their progress and lifestyle. Technological and social innovations can also challenge people to be physically active or to support other healthy behaviour. Technology in rehabilitation can also improve the care process with artificial intelligence and individually collected data or big data. The research group Rehabilitation and Technology is a joint research group between The Hague University of Applied Sciences and Basalt (www.basaltrevalidatie.nl).
2 themesThe activities of the research group operate at the intersection of care and technology and the intersection of practice-based and scientific research. The research uses a co-creation process and develops, evaluates and implements eHealth and care technology within the following themes:
- better rehabilitation care through the use of technology
- promoting a healthier lifestyle in people who are rehabilitating through the use of technology

Assistive technology for longer independent living (AW Technology for Home)
Assistive devices are of great importance in supporting and improving the users' independence, quality of life and participation in society. With the right aids, people who experience limitations in daily life can also live independently at home for longer. They are also needed to meet the growing demand for care. By using aids, a lot of care can take place in the home situation. The Academic Workshop: Technology for Home* will conduct research that will help to use aids intelligently and effectively in the home situation.
