About Research

The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) is committed to seeking new and imaginative solutions to meet the needs of our service users.

Research is an important part of this process. Our clinicians and research staff regularly engage in audit and service evaluation activities, and carry out research, working in close collaboration with graduate, post-graduate students and academic and research institutions in a range of projects. For more information.

This spotlight will provide an overview of our innovative service delivery and treatment, share our knowledge, and capture everyone's imagination in order to make the outcomes of neurobehavioural rehabilitation ever better. Our research mainly focuses on the following:

  • Impact of Acquired Brain Injury
  • Development of new tests and instruments
  • Outcomes and cost benefits
  • Technology to support independent living
