The Florida Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation (FIDR) brings together University of Florida (UF) faculty and Veterans Health Administration (VHA) investigators to advance the science and practice of rehabilitation.
Representing one of the largest groups of rehabilitation investigators in the world, the FIDR is advancing rehabilitation to eliminate or minimize disability, while expanding education in rehabilitation and related professions.
A wide range of research is conducted within the Florida Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation. This research ranges from studies on the underlying mechanisms in the rehabilitation process, to the improvement of body structure/function through active treatment, and from compensatory strategies with the aim of increasing activity and participation, to the reintegration of individuals with disabilities into their families and communities following rehabilitation.
