The Reuth Institute for Research and Development
Prof. Rachel Dankner
Founded in 2012, and currently directed by Prof. Rachel Dankner, the Reuth Research and Development Institute (RRDI) promotes a wide range of clinical research in the fields of rehabilitation. We, at the Reuth Rehabilitation Hospital and the RRDI, encourage our physicians and healthcare professionals to initiate and participate in innovative research.
The main objective of the research supported by the RRDI is to develop innovative and efficient treatment methods to improve the rehabilitation processes of our patients. Many of the studies are carried out in collaboration with researchers from the biomedical industry and the academia.
At any given time, dozens of studies are conducted at Reuth, in a range of medical and paramedical fields, including research initated by Reuth’s researchers as well as by companies and academia. The latter collaborations are rooted in a deep understanding of the challenges faced when bringing a new device or drug into the market. RRDI excels in handling work processes, providing uncompromised high quality research.
Many graduate students (MA, MSc, and PhD) in the fields of physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychology, social work, speech therapy, nutrition, epidemiology and public health carry out their research at Reuth Rehabilitation Hospital under the guidance of the senior staff of the hospital and RRDI.
Students from the following institutions are currently carrying out their research projects at Reuth:
- Tel Aviv University
- Bar Ilan University
- Ariel University
- Haifa University
- Ben Gurion University of the Negev
- The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
- The Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya (Reichman University)
- The Tel Aviv-Jaffa Academic College
Additionally, Reuth Rehabilitation Hospital and RRDI collaborate with academic innovation programs, with the aim of identifying needs and developing novel technological solutions for these needs.
