Community Physical Therapy Research

  1. Research Overview
  2. “Community” is our research base, in which we focus on physical therapy research in the aspects of promotion, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation. We have a number of target populations, such as older people, OA-knee patients, disabled people, diabetes, women health, children, caregivers, migrants etc. Multidisciplinary team and participation of the community is an important part of conducting research. Overall, our ultimate goal is to sustainably improve the community's wellbeing.
