Predicting the Likelihood of Independent Walking 1-year after Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury

The Team

To help bridge the gap between spinal cord injury (SCI) researchers to clinicians and clinicians to patients with SCI, our team includes a partnership between the Rick Hansen Spinal Cord Injury Registry (RHSCIR) Ottawa Site and Praxis Spinal Cord Institute (Praxis AI). We translated results from our publication1 based on our work with the Canadian RHSCIR Network into an app that can be used in the clinical application.
