At Askham Rehab, we are thrilled to be able to support one of the pivotal elements when it comes to the development of neurorehab – research.
As we always say, it cannot be highlighted enough how crucial ongoing innovation and development are for this sector. That’s why we have decided to be part of an important initiative that could help individuals and teams continue to work on their life-changing projects.

The Research Project of the Year Award
Askham Rehab decided to support one important award given for life-changing research in neurorehab. As part of the first-ever NR Times Awards, the Research Project of the Year Award aims to shine a light on the outstanding work of those working in academic and clinical fields who are helping to change the future.
Talking about the initiative taken by Askham Rehab, the Director of Askham Rehab, Aliyyah-Begum Nasser, said: “Askham is proud to be sponsoring this award. With so much innovation in the space, patients stand to benefit enormously from pioneering ideas, equipment and approaches.”
“We look forward to reviewing entries and will be looking for robust approaches to ensuring that the path from idea to implementation is fully supported with evidence based research. Best of luck to all nominees!”
Sharing her thoughts regarding this award, Deborah Johnson, editor of NR Times, highlights: ““We want to find the individuals and teams around the world whose work is playing a vital role in delivering this progress, and whose research is helping to inspire the change and new practice which will deliver the life-changing patient outcomes.”
Research – the heart of major breakthroughs
It is without a doubt that research helps to change the future and gives hope to patients living with neurological illness and injury. By being at the heart of major breakthroughs and new developments in the world of neurorehab, research becomes key for progress in this area of healthcare.
We believe it’s important that any innovation is supported by appropriate research to ensure it is not only safe but also effective for any user.
Discussing about the impact of research on rehabilitation, Aliyyah points out: “At Askham we believe it’s important that any innovation is supported by appropriate research to ensure it is not only safe but also effective for any user. We have worked with a variety of organisations to participate in research and bring the newest concepts to our patients.”
Askham Rehab, part of Askham Village Community, is a family-run operation with more than 30 years’ experience of working in the sector, including a decade within the field of neuro-rehab, where it continues to deliver beyond-expectation outcomes to patients after neurological illness and injury.
By linking the necessity for research with the hope for a better future, Deborah adds: “Research is absolutely fundamental to the progress we see in this fast-moving area of healthcare, and while helping to change lives now, it also gives hope for the future to so many for whom treatments or therapies may not immediately be available.”
