Dr Ishara Dharmasena - my story on why Rehabilitation Matters

Dr Ishara Dharmasena, Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow and Lecturer in the School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering, has spoken to Rehabiliatation Matters about his research and how the NRC can help to revolutionise rehabilitation across the globe.

Dr Dharmasena explained:

"There is a lot of great work going on to develop new healthcare technologies. The National Rehabilitation Centre (NRC) and its Rehab Technologies Network+ is doing a fantastic job at bringing experts together to explore increasing the use of technology in rehabilitation to help get people back to fitness and function faster following serious injury or illness.

"One area I’m specifically interested in is telerehabilitation, which involves the remote delivery of rehabilitation services using telecommunication devices, such as smartphones and tablets."
