The aim of rehabilitation is to restore the health of victims so that they can take up their former occupation or an alternative one and participate as fully independent members of society. Rehabilitation thus represents all concrete measures that are suitable for reinstating victims in the personal, vocational and social roles that they played prior to their accident or illness.

There are thus three different aspects of rehabilitation:

  • medical
  • vocational and
  • social rehabilitation.
In combination, the related measures should result in optimal achievement of the objective.
