The Center is a unique reality on the national scene, being able to integrate university education, research and high specialization of its students to provide the patient with rehabilitation methods and last generation performance.

Another feature that confers importance to this new reality is the Memorandum of Understanding signed with the Pisan Hospital-University to support research, development and training in this rehabilitation field.
