INSPIRE Research

The Initiative for the Development of New Technologies and Practices in Rehabilitation (INSPIRE) aims to develop, evaluate, and implement novel technologies and interventions intended to enhance social roles and participation and health-related quality of life of individuals with physical impairments and functional disabilities.

  • Evaluate and Prioritize – client/family and clinical practice needs to optimize clinical and community services for individuals with physical impairments and functional disabilities across the continuum of care,

  • Evaluate – current rehabilitation practices and community services for individuals with physical impairments and functional disabilities across the continuum of care,

  • Implement and evaluate – the impact of new rehabilitation and health informatics interventions on quality of care, functional ability, social roles and participation, and health-related quality of life across the continuum of care.

The INSPIRE project has been constructed around three pillars outlined below.

Evaluation and prioritization of rehabilitation needs.

  • Needs Analysis – based on:

    • Environmental analysis
    • Perspective evaluation of stakeholders
  • Prioritization – of needs by consensus methods

  • Program – updates

Evaluation of rehabilitation practice and development of intervention strategies

  • Integration – of stakeholder’s perspectives

  • Improvement – of quality of care

    • Development of an evaluation conceptual framework
    • Development of an evaluation platform

Transformation of rehabilitation practices

  • Implementation – of new technologies and interventions

    • Patient portal, clinicians, caregivers
    • Clinical information system
    • Innovative technologies for mobility
