Research & Development

Realizing the acute shortage of highly qualified researchers and to enhance research culture among the HHIRS Faculty and students, the Research and Development (R&D) Department was established since the inception of HHIRS Academics Programs. 

The department of R&D has been  continuously focusing to take initiatives for new products and services in rehabilitative medical technology to the changing landscape of healthcare.  The department is finding new approaches and innovative ideas that can be implemented as new solutions. The R&D specifically concentrating on rehabilitation medical knowledge and clinical services as goal oriented. 

R&D Department welcomes and creates good working relationship with other higher learning rehabilitation institutions, and donor agencies in the activities that can enhance academic and research excellence. We will achieve this through working with student and faculty members to capitalize on effective partnerships with corporate clinicians.
