IMPROVE is an Interdisciplinary Platform for Rehabilitation Research and Innovative Care of Stroke Patients. The aim of this collaborative platform is to foster neurorehabilitation research and to transfer evidence-based innovative neurorehabilitation into clinical practice. As a first step, an observational, longitudinal, multicenter study of functional stroke recovery after patients’ discharge from inpatient rehabilitation is performed to better understand the dynamics and underlying mechanisms of recovery from stroke.
IMRPOVE is a cooperation between the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE), five Neurological Rehabilitation Centers in Northern Germany (RehaCentrum Hamburg, MEDICLIN Klinikum Soltau, Klinikum Bad Bramstedt, VAMED Klinik Geesthacht and VAMED Rehaklinik Damp), and the Deutsche Rentenversicherung Nord (DRV Nord).
