Welcome Message


Over the last decade, we witnessed and experienced an exponential increase in the use of advanced technologies to improve the efficacy of rehabilitative treatments and productivity of rehabilitation services in Singapore. 

In Nanyang Technological University (NTU), we have foreseen this increasingly important role that technology will play in addressing the many challenges that emerge with a rapidly ageing Singapore population. The establishment of Rehabilitation Research Institute of Singapore (RRIS), through collaboration with A*STAR and NHG, encapsulates NTU’s commitment towards research in rehabilitation science and engineering. 

We envision RRIS to be a world class research institute that provides leadership in rehabilitation related research at the national, if not regional, level. This shall be achieved through well designed thematic grant calls, establishment of a rehabilitation ecosystem as well as building institute’s capability through involvement in clinically relevant projects. We are thrilled to be part of this exciting journey and welcome like-minded students, researchers and clinicians to join us.
