The Rehabilitation Foundation
Showing the way in rehabilitation
Our fields of expertise are sustainable employment and work capacity, the best attainable functional capacity and a stronger civic society. We carry out our core duties while continuously developing our solid expertise and practices, rethinking and crossing structural boundaries to ensure our operational efficiency. The Rehabilitation Foundation wants to make an impact through knowledge.
Our aim is to serve as a Living Lab in rehabilitation, to introduce tangible reforms in the rehabilitation sector and to produce tools for reshaping our field in Finland. The Living Lab is an innovative environment built on user-centred research, impact assessment and practical concepts that will help modernise the Finnish rehabilitation system.
We want to give rehabilitees good quality of everyday life and opportunities for improved life management and return to work. We are located in Malminkartano, Helsinki, within good transport links.
As a non-profit organisation, our operations are partially funded by Veikkaus Oy. We have approximately 80 employees.
