The Research Unit deals with improving the conditions of children in need of Neurorehabilitation, facilitating their harmonious development and the achievement of maximum autonomy. The goal is to promote social inclusion and improve the quality of life. To achieve this goal, it makes use of new technologies, including robotics and virtual reality, in training strategies in the pediatric age group.

The Unit team is committed to increasing knowledge on the recovery processes related to the activation of neuronal plasticity (ie the regeneration of neurons) after neurological damage. The Research Unit also defines innovative intervention strategies, taking into consideration all the critical aspects of the rehabilitation process, in order to optimize its outcomes.

Finally, it deals with identifying standardized functional indices, through the use of objective motor performance evaluation systems, to understand the child’s clinical history and verify the results of therapeutic trials.
