The Mission of this RERC is to champion innovative rehabilitation technologies and approaches that will improve therapeutic outcomes among individuals with neurologic impairment. This RERC will develop and test home-based devices and techniques with the unifying goal of increasing spontaneous motor activity in the impaired limbs. Specifically, this RERC hopes to achieve the following long-term outcomes:

  • Enhance patient-centered therapeutic outcomes through activity-based interventions.
  • Promote commercial adoption of devices and subsequent successful market penetration.
  • Expand access to rehabilitation by developing home-based interventions.
  • Develop new tools for motivating and measuring spontaneous functional movement.
  • Train a new generation of clinicians and engineers working with rehabilitation devices.
