Participants and partners:

The Center for Neurotechnology and Rehabilitation (CNR) is a collaboration between Neuroenhed Nord at North Denmark Regional Hospital, the Department of Neurology at Aalborg University Hospital, as well as the Department of Health Science and Technology and the Department of Clinical Medicine at Aalborg University. Finally, the Center for Clinical Research at North Denmark Regional Hospital has a supporting role. CNR builds upon an already established long-standing collaboration between the partners.

What are our fundamental goals/objectives?

  • The purpose of the Center for Neurotechnology and Rehabilitation (CNR) is to strengthen research and development of clinical technology-based neurorehabilitation for stroke patients in the unique single-stranded rehabilitation process in the North Jutland Region.
  • CNR has a special focus on conducting interdisciplinary and patient-centered research. Thus, clinicians, therapists, and researchers collaborate in close dialogue together and with patients in relation to the development, validation, and implementation of new technology to support the existing neurorehabilitation strategies.
  • In addition, there will be collaboration to establish national professional guidelines, implement national recommendations, and establish a systematic follow-up after rehabilitation.
  • Likewise, CNR will contribute to the training of health professional groups in the field of neurorehabilitation.

Our research – what we do:

The mission of the Center for Neurotechnology and Rehabilitation is to generate new knowledge in neurotechnology and rehabilitation through interdisciplinary research for the benefit of stroke patients. In addition, CNR's mission is to develop innovative screening and treatment strategies within stroke rehabilitation.

How does our research contribute to societal health challenges?

The Center for Neurotechnology and Rehabilitation (CNR) is a state-of-the-art center that brings together clinicians, therapists, and researchers around the individual patient under one roof. The establishment of research facilities with the latest and most advanced equipment in this interdisciplinary environment will not only be of benefit for stroke patients and their relatives in North Jutland but will also put the North Jutland Region on the world map in stroke neurorehabilitation. This creates an attractive work and development environment for neurologists, therapists, nurses, researchers, students, and other health professionals to specialise in neurology and neurorehabilitation in the North Jutland Region. In addition, it is expected that the collaboration between the public and private sectors will lead to further development of new products and solutions, which will contribute to new patents and the start-up of new companies for the benefit of North Jutland's business development.
