About Us

The Centre for Rehab Innovations (CRI), is a world-class Centre developing interdisciplinary solutions for individually tailored health and rehabilitation programs in community and home settings, and within rehabilitation centres. 

We focus on interventions that promote resilience and patient recovery, incorporating cutting-edge translational knowledge on brain plasticity, neuro-architecture, inspired redesign, residential telemedicine, sensor enriched patient engagement, robotics, comprehensive allied health training and carer training processes, and the utilisation of local community based infrastructures. 

Innovative

Founded on a diverse and accomplished team of professionals, together with a strong broad multidisciplinary collaboration, CRI provides a unique environment to develop innovative solutions which will cater for future demands and new directions in rehabilitation. Applying new and innovative technology will empower patients to influence their own path to recovery.

 

 

Collaborative

Engaging with industry and the health care sector, to develop solutions that facilitate individualised patient rehabilitative solutions in different settings, enables CRI to offer a one-stop-shop for business, industry and government partners to work with researchers bringing different capabilities in the area of rehabilitation.

The future of rehabilitation lies in Precision Rehabilitation - individualised interventions, guided by neuroscientific, biomedical and psychosocial principles

New models of care

The demand for new models of care supported by emerging technologies is growing sharply across the health sector. A wide range of health areas require long-term rehabilitation including: 

-  Diseases and injuries of the central nervous
   system including, stroke, Traumatic Brain
   Injury (TBI) and spinal cord injury
-  Degenerative conditions leading to cognitive
   decline
-  Musculoskeletal conditions
-  Severe trauma
-  Psychiatric conditions
-  Chronic pain
-  Recovery from surgery

reduced costs

There is a need for innovative solutions to reduce ongoing costs in long-term rehabilitation. Sustainable, effective solutions implemented as a part of long-term recovery strategies, adds strong value to the traditional hospitals and practices, contributing to both improved patient outcome and results in health care budget savings and reduced costs to the community.
