Ability Database
The Ability Database Project aims to establish an Asian-centric normative and patient movement database consisting of kinetic and kinematic data. The normative movement database provides a benchmark of normal movements, and it can be used as a reference against individuals with movement impairments to determine the severity of the impairment, effectiveness of treatment, rehabilitation progress and to develop new rehabilitation technologies and methods. In the patient movement database, patients with neurological and orthopaedic conditions will be tracked longitudinally.  Changes in kinetic and kinematic parameters across time could then be used to estimate the trajectory of the recovery.
Precision Rehabilitation
The development and clinical validation of movement proficiency indices (MPI) built on statistical parametric mapping (SPM) to formulate a decision-support framework for improved musculoskeletal management and joint health
Connected Rehabilitation
Development and trial of a Connected Rehabilitation Platform and associated technology to enable motivation, education and monitoring of patients at home and in the community to provide empowerment and ensure their wellness, with focus on movement and movement related data

Intelligent Assistive Technology (AT)
To enable AT to be more effective in serving the needs of users by employing a data-driven approach to make assistive devices more intelligent in detecting human intents and to provide adaptive assistance in the accomplishment of ADLs.

Psychosocial Rehabilitation and Quality of Life (QoL)
Towards a holistic understanding of health-related quality of life trajectories among first-time stroke patients and their family caregivers in Singapore: Needs, strengths and actions to aid psychosocial recovery and rehabilitation
