Improving functioning in complex rehabilitation populations

Research consists of clinical studies to the foci in patient care. 4 research lines can be distinguished: 1) neuromuscular diseases, particularly postpoliomyelitis syndrome (PPS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and, hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy (HMSN) 2) neuropathic foot disorders (diabetes and leprosy), 3) children (developmental disorders, very low birth weight infants, needs assessment with CAP®) 4) physical therapy and exercise (in post intensive care patients, oncology, diabetes, hypermobility).
Themes: Infection and Immunity, Metabolic Disorders, Neurological and Psychiatric Disorders, Public Health
