Health & wellbeing Rehabilitation

The rehabilitation sub-theme of the Health and Wellbeing Strategic Theme focuses on developing the technologies required for modern day rehabilitation services, the techniques used in these services, and the scientific data and other indicators on which evidence based rehabilitation can be based.

We represent a multidisciplinary research grouping, including biomedical engineering, prosthetics, orthotics, speech and language therapy, psychology, maths, statistics, computing, education and relevant science and engineering.

Top-rated research group

As a research group, we were rated top in Scotland, and fourth in the UK, in Unit of Assessment 3, in the recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, and were the top rehabilitation submission.

Experience & engagement

We have a 50 year reputation for internationally leading rehabilitation research and house the Scottish Government Funded Centre of Excellence in Rehabilitation Research.

Across the sub-theme we have highly experienced rehabilitation researchers, approximately 50 students on research degrees, a thriving community of post-doctoral researchers and world class research facilities in biomechanics, neuro-rehabilitation, psychology and motor control.

We have extensive links with industry, the UK NHS and health care across the world.
