For a world in which disability makes no difference
Going to work, shopping, doing sport or simply climbing stairs – for patients with neuromuscular injuries and people with physical disabilities, everyday activities can pose major challenges. Painstaking research, state-of-the-art assistive technologies and increased public awareness of rehabilitation-related issues could make life much easier for many people.
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 it adopts to rehabilitation – ranging from basic research and clinical/everyday applications to social and economic aspects.
