A main task of the unit is to assist in the systematic collection and analysis of data from patients admitted to rehabilitation after acquired brain injury and neurological disorders at Vejlefjord Rehabilitation. Data from tests assessing mobility and motor functioning, activities of daily living, functional independence and emotional well-being are routinely collected with consent from our patients by the multidisciplinary staff. By collecting and analyzing data from tests and measures, the unit aids in monitoring the quality and outcome of the neurorehabilitation program at Vejlefjord Rehabilitation.

The unit is also actively engaged in research projects and welcomes collaborations with universities, research institutions and other hospitals. An overall aim of the unit is to provide scientific evidence and knowledge of importance to both patients, relatives, and professionals within the field of neurorehabilitation including, but not limited to, rehabilitation interventions, technology and assessment methods.
