The Clinical Exercise and Rehabilitation Research Cluster’s (CERC) vision is to create clinical, community-led, and governmentally-driven solutions for all persons to live a healthy long life, free from preventable suffering and disability caused by musculoskeletal conditions and preventable non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
The Clinical Exercise and Rehabilitation Research Cluster (CERC) brings together the expertise and skills of academics, industry, and relevant stakeholders concerned with addressing the following societal issues:
• Issue 1: Prevent ever-growing prevalence of acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) to reduce morbidity and treatment cost, while enhancing quality of life.
• Issue 2: To manage established acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) to reduce morbidity, mortality and treatment cost of existing conditions and diseases, while enhancing quality of life.
• Issue 3: Optimise the outcomes in individuals with already established NCD through the development of novel and innovative tools.
• Issue 4: Understanding the mechanisms, incidence, and prevalence to inform the primary prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in a way that contributes to mitigating morbidity and elevating long-term quality-of-life.
• Issue 5: Understanding the mechanisms, incidence and prevalence to inform the rehabilitation and management of traumatic and gradual-onset injury in a way that contributes to mitigating morbidity and elevating long-term quality-of-life.
• Issue 6: Curb local and international health inequalities through appropriate and scientifically-driven prevention and management mechanisms.
