CARRE is a research translational facility of the Faculty of
Rehabilitation Medicine that fosters research, particularly in the area of
physical rehabilitation in spinal cord injury, and serves as an interface where
research can be conducted and applied to clinical practice.
The main objectives of CARRE are to:
1) Conduct translational research in the
field of neurological rehabilitation, with an emphasis on developing and
testing new therapies.
2) Offer intensive walking retraining to research participants living with a spinal cord injury and children who have had early brain injury, such as perinatal stroke. Promising
findings from research are applied to patient populations to
determine clinical outcomes and ideal protocols.
3) Provide a hands-on teaching site for rehabilitation
students and continuing education for practising clinicians.
