Research Involves

Dr. Kho's research focuses on effective and creative methods of physiotherapy to help patients stay as strong as possible while they are in the intensive care unit (ICU). Patients in the ICU are the sickest in the hospital, and need life-saving technology such as breathing machines.

If patients survive their critical illness, one in four have severe weakness impairing their quality of life for up to five years after ICU discharge. As our population ages and the demand for breathing machines increases, Dr. Kho's rehabilitation research will help improve function and quality of life in ICU survivors.
