Rehabilitation know-how from the Institute of Rehabilitation

Experts of the Institute of Rehabilitation laughing around the table
The institute is a centre for education, development and research in the field of multidisciplinary rehabilitation.

The Institute of Rehabilitation is a pioneer in rehabilitation. We are reforming and strengthening rehabilitation know-how to meet the changing national and international needs by means of degree programmes in physiotherapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation counselling and social services and by utilising continuous learning, research and business.

We have a group of more than 50 experts working for us, consisting of senior lecturers, lecturers, researchers as well as experts in international activities, business and entrepreneurship.

We serve as a platform for competence, research and business development

The Institute of Rehabilitation is well-networked, and its operations are in close cooperation with JAMK’s different focus areas and experts from different units. We want to create new partnerships with education and research organisations for multidisciplinary rehabilitation, service providers and rehabilitation technology companies. The Institute of Rehabilitation serves as a platform for competence, research and business development where companies, researchers, developers, students and trainers meet!

Our activities focus on active life and excercise rehabilitation, client/service guidance and rehabilitation processes as well as rehabilitation technologies and environments.

We aim to reform home rehabilitation and work ability rehabilitation

We invest in the introduction of remote and simulation rehabilitation and various digital solutions. One of our aims is to reform home rehabilitation and work ability rehabilitation know-how. We see preventive and early stage rehabilitation as important in terms of e.g. maintaining study and work ability or supporting the independence and functioning of the ageing population.
