Introduction of a new performance indicator (t2D) in rehabilitation

This paper presents a new method to evaluate the individual “performance” of a patient. This performance indicator (t2D) can be particularly useful for evaluating critical success factors in the rehabilitation process and identify best performers and non-responders in a simple way. This is important for future research activities in order to tailor a rehabilitation program for the individual patient.
