Biosciences in Rehabilitation

The Biosciences in Rehabilitation are basic sciences which aim to explain body injury, adaptation and repair from the molecular to the cellular, organ system and organism level and to identify targets for biomedical interventions to improve body functions and structures. There is a need to organize rehabilitation and related research into distinct scientific fields in order to overcome the current limitations of rehabilitation research. Based on the general distinction in basic, applied and professional sciences applicable to research in general, and the rehabilitation relevant distinction between the comprehensive perspective based on WHO's integrative model of human functioning (ICF) and the partial perspective focusing on the biomedical aspects of functioning, it is possible to identify 5 distinct scientific fields of human functioning and rehabilitation research. These are the emerging human functioning sciences and integrative rehabilitation sciences from the comprehensive perspective, the established biosciences and biomedical rehabilitation sciences and engineering from the partial perspective, and the professional rehabilitation sciences at the cutting edge of research and practice. The human functioning sciences aim to understand human functioning and to identify targets for comprehensive interventions, with the goal of contributing to the minimization of the experience of disability in the population. The biosciences in rehabilitation aim to explain body injury and repair and to identify targets for biomedical interventions.

The biosciences may be described as the study of life at all levels of complexity from molecules to populations.The Biosciences in Rehabilitation are basic sciences which aim to explain body injury, adaptation and repair from the molecular to the cellular, organ system and organism level and to identify targets for biomedical interventions to improve body functions and structures.
