The Rancho Rehabilitation Engineering is nationally recognized for its applied research contributions to the development of assistive technologies for persons living with disability. Our missions are to create and evaluate new technologies for persons with disabilities and to recruit and train persons to become rehabilitation engineering professionals. The Rehabilitation Engineering Department is part of Los Amigos Research and Education Institute(LAREI) and an important component of Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center’s rehabilitation program since the 1960s when major contributions were made to the development of orthoses, skeletal fixation systems and powered wheelchairs, and functional electrical stimulation. Our current projects include the Rehabilitation Engineering Center (RERC) on Technologies for Successful Aging with Disability (a collaboration between the University of Southern California and Rancho) and the Southern California Spinal Cord Injury Model Systems; funded by the National Institute on Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) of the Department of Education. The Rehabilitation Engineering would like to thank you for visiting our website and invite you to look more into our activities.
