Course content

The therapy/rehabilitation related research at Keele is aimed at optimising independence and quality of life, health and exercise programmes, measurement and modelling, service evaluation and the role of assistive technology.

All appropriate resources and services access required to support rehabilitation research is available within the School of Health and Rehabilitation and collaborating organisations (NHS, Industry and collaborating HEI). Much of our research is based at the patient interface and therefore most measurement devices are portable. Please contact appropriate staff with project specific enquiries.

A team of experienced researchers supervises the research activities within this group and peer support is available via interactions with the many research fellows, research associates and research students. There is a vibrant multidisciplinary group which has wide international representation. Support is also available from local collaborations based in Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Hospital and Staffordshire University.
