Medical rehabilitation is a complex, interdisciplinary system of inpatient and outpatient therapies that is part of more complex system that includes emergent and acute care following catastrophic illness or injury as well as networks that provide long term services and support. This system and its components provide opportunities for a broad diversity of applied research studies. The targets of current research at RHI range from interventions to reduce disability to ways to better measure rehabilitation effectiveness to leading edge methods to evaluate patients and maximize their outcomes.
A program of translational research integrated with clinical practice that establishes RHI as a world class
neuroscience rehabilitation center.
RHI invites physicians and patients interested in participating in research to contact us about rehabilitation research or participation in our studies. The partnership between RHI, physicians and patients is important in the continual effort to advance evidence-based practice. Please contact us in the “Contact RHI Today” link at the top right of the front page if you are interested.
