CIR is composed by 17 Ph.D. integrated researchers and 61 collaborators (22 with a Ph.D. and 36 Ph.D. students) dedicated to the field of Rehabilitation sciences, in motor, cognitive and phsycosocial perspective, throughout the life cycle and its implications and interrelationships with activities and participation.
