New network to study, improve neurological rehabilitation
May 17, 2023
CALGARY – Alberta Health Services and the University of Calgary are partnering to support people with spinal cord injuries, strokes and movement issues. The Researching Strategies for Rehabilitation, or RESTORE, Network is to work with a specialized group of academics and experts to conduct clinical trials and test new therapies and technologies to improve the quality of life for those with neurological disorders.
The network is working to “ensure continuity of care and access to novel neuro-rehabilitation techniques for people of all ages,” research manager Kelly Larkin-Kaiser said.
“Our vision is to develop a centre where we can develop our own biotechnology, so that we can innovate further and use less off-the-shelf technology,” she said.
The network is focused on three areas of rehabilitation study – spinal cord injuries, stroke and movement impairment – each with its dedicated team of researchers to conduct clinical studies or pilots.
