Swiss Paraplegic Research

Functioning and rehabilitation research from a comprehensive perspective proposes a unique selling proposition (USP) for the Swiss Paraplegic Group. Using the clinical and community-oriented approach, research is supposed to consider the whole person and therefore all relevant aspects of human experience should be taken into consideration by researchers.

The researchers at SPF are following the principle “get strategy into research” (GSIR) which means constant crosschecking whether this research strategy has been applied in the single research projects.

In the development the overall goal can be expressed in the slogan “get research into practice” (GRIP) which promotes and guarantees the implementation of the research results into care.
