The professorship for rehabilitation medicine develops new concepts of prevention and rehabilitation of chronic degenerative diseases. The main focus is on interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral tasks in modern rehabilitation medicine. The development of new care models is examined both on the basis of intervention studies and in the context of health care research. The content includes reintegration into workplace or the sustainable care of older patients with mobility restrictions and / or malnutrition. The effectiveness of modern means of communication and the use of telemetric interventions are also examined.
Another focus is the participation in the development of research-based teaching in the master's programs "Public Health, Exercise and Nutrition" and "Health Services Research".
