Details research group Rehabilitation Research Center (REVAL)


Expertise of the research group :

The Rehabilitation Research Center (REVAL) is part of the biomedical research institute (BIOMED) of Hasselt University. Research within the REVAL research group is divided into four subdomains of rehabilitation sciences: 

Neurological and geriatric rehabilitation
Rehabilitation of cardiorespiratory and internal diseases
Musculoskeletal rehabilitation
Pediatric rehabilitation

Within all domains, research questions can be situated on the level of applied clinical research, closely related to clinical practice, and on the level of underlying mechanisms (immunological, neurophysiological, anatomical, motor learning, metabolic). Besides, REVAL includes biomechanical and health psychological research supporting the domains listed above.
REVAL is an European leading center in MS physical rehabilitation as well as cardiometabolic and COPD rehabilitation. It is involved in the relevant European organizations in these listed domains. REVAL is also recognised for its methodological expertise in non-invasive brain stimulation, this resulted in bilateral cooperation with international experts in this field and is also known for research on imitation in autism. More recently, REVAL is having an increased (inter)national reputation in technology-supported physical rehabilitation, also thanks to the collaboration with EDM and Eindhoven University of Technology.
