Rehabilitation engineering research at Certec is about people, technology, learning and design from a disability perspective.
Our research is situated starting from the lived disability. This means that the research perspective is that of the individual concerned and is carried out in the individual's current life situation. Our aim is to design userworthy technology by means of design side by side with the intended users.
