Rehabilitation and Ageing

The focus of this multidisciplinary group is on the rehabilitation process among adults with any kind of impairment and those in later life. The research aims to provide the evidence upon which health and social care interventions can be based, to reduce the impact of injury and disease on the lives of people with physical and learning disabilities and their families. Current research themes include: stroke rehabilitation including dressing, long term care, evaluation of behavioural approaches to improve mood, and the evaluation of STEM cells to achieve functional recovery after stroke, community rehabilitation and studies related to the assessment of need; transport and mobility - work relating to driving competence, and in promoting mobility when driving is impossible; falls and postural stability; vocational rehabilitation; chronic fatigue syndrome; rehabilitation interventions in neuromuscular disease; organisation of services for people with long term neurological disease; technology and equipment, including work based at the Derby Assistive Technology Evaluation Centre (ATEC); learning disabilities research, in particular research into systems of care and transitions between services, as well as a growing programme of research, with computer scientists, on the use of virtual environments in rehabilitation.
