The mission programme Movement disorders supports the Interdisciplinary Consortium for clinical Movement Sciences & technology (ICMS).
ICMS is aimed at improving the quality of life and maintaining independence and social participation of people suffering from movement disorders. This goal will be achieved through joint and interdisciplinary scientific research focused at innovation whereby a close cooperation exists between scientists, private health funding organizations and innovative companies.
ICMS is a unique partnership between the Sint Maartenskliniek (a specialized hospital entirely focused on movement disorders), the Radboud University Medical Centre, the Radboud University, the University of Twente, Roessingh Research & Development (RRD), Roessingh Rehabilitation Centre working together with science driven companies (national and international). ICMS has the ambition of becoming a national research centre and additional partners are welcomed. ICMS research is on the one hand driven by curiosity and the ambition to belong to the international scientific top, and on the other hand driven by a felt social responsibility to contribute to providing solutions for the future of our health care system.
