The Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital has a lifetime commitment to research.

In the late 1990s, this commitment was expanded to include dedicated space for rehabilitation research, innovation and technology development. Today, the historic building that was once the North Telephone Exchange is home to the Department of Rehabilitation Research and Technology Development.

Rehabilitation research focuses on finding new and better ways to help people of all ages maintain their independence or to regain skills and abilities needed to live their life to the fullest extent possible.

The GRH Rehabilitation Research Centre serves as a focal point, drawing together students, private industry, academia and clinicians through innovation, development of new technologies, research and the translation of knowledge gained for the benefit of patients and the health care system.
