The Spinal Cord Rehab Innovation Challenge
Neuromuscular Control and Biomechanics Laboratory (NCB-Lab) at the University of Alberta has a research focus on the development and clinical implementation of rehabilitative technologies for improving the quality of life of individuals affected by movement impairments. Particularly, the NCB-Lab has been developing wearable technology packages for health and performance monitoring in the long-term and providing automated feedback to individuals with spinal cord injury. This technology can promote self-management and at-home rehabilitation activities in individuals with spinal cord injury toward improving their functional movements and performance, independence and quality of life.
