Spinal Cord Rehab Innovation Challenge Deadline: 2020-06-11
Award: € 200,000
Open to: Everyone*

Spinal cord injury (SCI) impacts multiple body systems and functions, and can contribute to decreased participation and quality of life. Following a spinal cord injury, many individuals seek rehabilitation to improve and restore body function and independence.

Typically, physical rehabilitation consists of a series of routine exercises prescribed by a clinician. The objective of rehabilitation is to improve function (e.g. physical, cardiovascular, respiratory, etc.) so individuals can participate in meaningful daily activities.

However, there is a lack of accessible technologies that track rehabilitation activities and their resulting impact on function. As a result, the relative effectiveness of both traditional and newly-developed physical rehabilitation methods (such as activity-based therapy) after spinal cord injury is difficult to evaluate.
