Brief description of the lab: 

The Clinical Rehabilitation Research lab focuses on the development of new methodologies to asses and treat various conditions with a broad aim of improving functional status and quality of life of individuals across the life span. 

​​JUST CRS Laboratories Promo

The research activities of lab staff is centered around five pillars: 

1) Rehabilitation in neurological conditions including multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and stroke

2) Rehabilitation in pediatric including cerebral palsy and autistic spectrum disorders 

3) Rehabilitation in orthopedic conditions including spinal pain, knee injuries and return to sport after knee injuries

4) Trauma- informed rehabilitation in various populations including mental health in refugees. 

5) Empowerment of participation in activities and active integration in community for people with disabilities

A main target of the lab is to support the master students' educational work within the framework of the elaboration of the thesis and dissertation laboratory component.

The lab has been established as part of Erasmus Plus funded project (JUST-CRS) and accordingly was funded to be equipped with a state of art of infrastructure and equipment that enable high quality research. 

The lab is led by a steering group committee which meets several times a year. The committee guides multidisciplinary research agenda in the field of rehabilitation and overseas the preparation and submission of proposals for national and international funding agencies.

The vast range of exciting projects links JUST with experts from nationally and internationally reputable institutions such as Oxford Brooks University (UK), Haccetepe University (Turkey), ESSA university (Portugal).
