Center for Health Research and Movement Science (CHRMS)

The Center for Health Research and Movement Science serves as the research unit of the College for Rehabilitation Science. All research activities initiated and developed in the College are coursed through the CHRMS. Its research projects focus on assessment and interventions to improve health, fitness, and quality of life for different patient and client populations. These studies were previously carried out at the Center for Research on Movement Science (CRMS), now known as CHRMS, which is an evidence translation group under the Center for Allied Health Evidence of the University of South Australia and an evidence synthesis group of the Joanna Briggs Institute.
