Research in the Paraplegic Centre
The research laboratory at Balgrist University Hospitals Paraplegic Centre is developing new treatment methods for paraplegics and tetraplegics and working on current fundamental research into spinal paralysis. Our research team includes expert kinesiologists, engineers, doctors and therapists, all of whom develop new knowledge, implement it and apply it for rehabilitation purposes. (organisation chart)
