Our neurorehabilitation research has advanced knowledge of the mechanisms associated with neurological disease processes and recovery and led to the development of new neurorehabilitation technology for treatment and assessment.

Our neurorehabilitation discoveries have generated a better understanding of how people's lives are affected by neurological disease and injury, and have made major contributions to techniques for research and clinical evaluation.

From 1993 RHT researchers at the University of Southampton have investigated how innovative neurorehabilitation technology could provide more effective rehabilitation and reduce the burden of stroke on patients, families and society.

Our research

Our balance research focuses on novel therapies, understanding balance and why people fall, as well as identifying those at risk, and fall related activities. Research leads to the development of new fall prevention technologies.

We achieve this through observational, feasibility and predictive studies, clinical trials and systematic reviews.
