Improved medical care and a better quality of life are the goals of the Rehab Initiative: everyone should be able to participate in occupational and social life. What makes this initiative unique is the holistic and interdisciplinary approach along the continuum-of-care – from basic scientific research through clinical and everyday applications to societal and economic impact. In short, rehabilitation of the future is user- and patient-centred.
The Competence Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Science (RESC) coordinates and strengthens the Rehab Initiative. As a network of expertise from academia, hospitals, industry, government, healthcare, disability organisations, and other NPOs, the centre promotes exchange, interdisciplinary research projects, innovative education programmes and knowledge transfer.
