The Norwegian research center for Active Rehabilitaion (NAR) was formally established in May 2003. The research center is a formal collaboration between The Orthopedic Center, Oslo University Hospital (UUS), The Norwegian Sport Medicine Clinic (NIMI), and the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences, Deptartment of Sport Medicine.
The overall aim is to develop a research environment for active rehabilitation, collaborating staff, resources and equipment within a small geographical area, and with visions of an expanding national and international collaboration.
NAR intends to coordinate the clinical environment and research resources within the area of Active Rehabilitation as an intervention for patients with acute injuries/disorders and overuse injuries of the musculoskeletal system. The research areas are at present: 1) Knee injuries (ACL injuries) and Knee Osteoarthritis 2) Hip Osteoarthritis 3) Low back pain and 4) Osteoporosis.

NAR has established itself as a leader in research related to active rehabilitation, at the intersection of three large institutions:
Department of Orthopaedics at Oslo University Hospital The main base of research performed at NAR is conducted throught the Department of Orthopaedics Center at Oslo University Hospital. Here, NAR is afforded access to the large, central research activity at the Department of Orthopaedics Center. This allows for further development of the research environments, with access to new subjects. The collaboration provides an avenue to develop important interdisciplinary competence and produces high quality, multidisiplinary clinicians.
NIMI (Norwegian Sport Medicine Clinic)
NAR is well integrated into NIMI, which provides large numbers of patients and multidisiplanary clinicians with expertise in the field of active rehabilitation and muskuloskeletal disorders.
Department of Sports Medicine, the Norwegian School of Sports Sciences.
