Numerous countries, including Australia, Canada, Denmark, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, UK and US have been developing the approach for several years with some countries taking a very different interpretation. In 2018, a European research project was established to develop greater understanding on the area and brought together the above-mentioned countries to develop an international network of collaboration and development. The group representing academics and clinicians have met on seminars in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. Currently we meet on a regular basis on webinars.
In 2021, the ReAble research network consists of 50 members from eleven countries (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, The Netherlands, England, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and US). Hanne Tuntland (Norway) is the coordinator of the network, with Magnus Zingmark (Sweden) and Jette Thuesen (Denmark) as close collaborators. The network has an extended coordination group which consists of Silke Metzelthin (The Netherlands), Micelle Nelson (Canada), Fiona Aspinal (England), Elissa Burton and Hilary O`Connel (Australia), and John Parsons and Matthew Parsons (New Zealand) in addition to the three aforementioned persons.
