Vision

Knowledge is meant to be free and needs to be shared widely. The paramount goal of all professionals working in neurorehabilitation is the benefit of the patient. The expert task force strongly believes in, and is committed to share any knowledge that will enable improved care.


Mission

  • To create a ‘Repository of Tools’ that can be used for evaluation, rehabilitation planning, interventions and monitoring outcomes in persons with neurological dysfunction.
  • To provide all information about these tools for professionals to improve clinical practice and research initiatives.
  • To include tools that are relevant in the Indian context.
  • To classify tools based on the ICF model.


Disclaimer

  • Please note that IFNR-KAR only maintains the website and does not hold any copyrights for the resources. For requests relating to replication, use of scale, please contact the creator of the scale directly.
  • Current repository resources are limited to selected neurorehabilitation tools, and these tools will be reviewed and updated at regular intervals.
  • If any of the Indian institutions are working on the adaptation and validation of the tools, you are open to collaborate with IFNR KAR. Please write to us at kar@ifnr.org
