The Neurorehabilitation group is committed to the development and evaluation of treatment approaches and rehabilitation strategies for patients with neurological diseases, such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury and congenital cerebral paresis. The development of assessment tools to evaluate changes in function is also an important field of research.
The common denominator for the different research activities is to increase knowledge and understanding of clinical manifestations, and effect of different treatment approaches and rehabilitation strategies of patients with neurological diseases.
An ongoing clinical study is “Early supported discharge after stroke in Bergen” which is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary project in collaboration with HUS and Bergen municipal health care system. Different aspects of early supported discharge are examined and several sub-projects are integrated.
