DARE Rehab User Advisory Group
DARE: Delivering the Digital Ambition for Rehabilitation will establish a Rehab User Advisory Group for a research study exploring how digital health technologies can support people undergoing rehabilitation.
Digital health technology has the potential to improve many aspects of patient care, including rehabilitation. It includes smartphone apps, wearable devices, virtual reality, robotics, and web-based platforms that can provide remote healthcare.
The Rehab User Advisory Group will provide oversight and advice on a study exploring what factors influence use and non-use of these technologies as part of rehabilitation or therapy. Findings from this study will be used to inform further research on how digital health technologies might be implemented.
It is being carried out by a team of researchers at the University of Central Lancashire.
