The department of Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy (REVAKI) is a growing department with a strong emphasis on the nexus of research, education and clinical practice.
The research of REVAKI is bundled within the research group MOVANT(MOVement ANTwerp). Our research is clustered into 3 focus domains (MetaMove, MoveAdapt, MoveMe), each with strong affinity for rehabilitation, movement and improvement of quality of life, studied from different angles: prognostic, diagnostic, interventional, mechanistic, technological, etc.
The educational programme of REVAKI consists of a 3y bachelor and 2y master degree. In a high-performing learning environment, students can acquire the competences, the knowledge and skills necessary to become physiotherapists.
Furthermore, REVAKI also delivers different servicesin several centres of expertise (Oscare, Antwerp HeArts, breast clinic, etc.) and for social causes (accreditation commission for physiotherapists, external reviewers for scientific journals, information and education for patient associations, etc.).
