Sociedade Portuguesa de Medicina Física e Reabilitação (SPMFR)
The global aim of rehabilitation, provided on a national level by the Portuguese society of medical and rehabilitation staff, is to allow disabled individuals to lead the life they want, in the context of any inevitable restrictions imposed by the disabilities resulting from illness or injury.
In practice, this situation is achieved by a combination of measures to:
- supply or create solutions for their disabilities;
- remove or reduce barriers to participation in the social activities chosen by the individual;
- support their reintegration into society.
