Rekryteringsgruppen Aktiv Rehabilitering (The Recruitment Group) A Swedish non-profit association that has worked to improve the daily lifes of individuals with spinal injuries since 1976.
The association has had a permanent rehabilitation centre at Bosön's Sports Institute in Lidingö outside Stockholm since 1991.
