Key facts:

Rehabilitation Science is the field of study which integrates the knowledge related to restoring the functional capacity of a person to perform the activities of everyday life and the interaction of that person with the surrounding environment that either disables or enables the individual to participate fully in society. This knowledge is then translated into interventions aimed at improving human performance and quality of life.
