IDEAL RRTC—Investigating Disability factors and promoting Environmental Access for Healthy Living Rehabilitation Research and Training Center
The overarching goal of the Investigating Disability factors and promoting Environmental Access for Healthy Living RRTC (IDEAL RRTC) is to promote the healthy aging of adults with long-term physical impairments and disabilities. This will be achieved by identifying factors at the intersection of the person and environment that impede or support positive health and function outcomes and creating solutions that improve the fit between the two.
The IDEAL RRTC will contribute to the understanding of successful aging with disability by investigating the interplay between individual factors and social and environmental barriers and facilitators, as they hinder or promote healthy aging and community participation. We will work across research stages to conduct research activities to promote the healthy aging of adults with long term physical disabilities.
