The Neurorehabilitation Research Unit deals with improving knowledge on the functional recovery processes associated with the activation of neuronal plasticity.

It contributes to defining innovative intervention strategies, through the study and multidisciplinary integration of the various aspects involved and deals with the rehabilitation treatment of the multi-disabled child. Other objectives of the activity carried out are:

  • Improving functional outcomes;
  • Facilitating harmonious development until the achievement of maximum personal autonomy;
  • Defining the objective indicators of motor performance through the use of optoelectronic analysis systems.

The Research Unit is also involved in devising innovative rehabilitation strategies and in developing and testing new technologies, including robotics and virtual reality.
