Around eight people currently work at IRPT. The team is composed of several research associates, PhD students, postdocs and a cohort of bachelor’s and master’s students.



  • Rehabilitation clinic in Rheinfelden
    IRPT works closely with well-known rehabilitation clinics all over Switzerland. In early 2011, we launched a formal research collaboration with the rehabilitation clinic in Rheinfelden near Basel. Our work focuses on patient rehabilitation following a stroke.


  • Swiss Paraplegic Centre in Nottwil
    We also study individuals who have sustained spinal cord injuries with our partners at the Swiss Paraplegic Centre in Nottwil.


We’re always open to enquiries about new projects and collaborations.
