Team Leader: Cathy Craven
The Neural Engineering and Therapeutics (NET) Team is primarily focused on translational research to advance understanding of neurological recovery, neurorehabilitation, and quality of life for individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI). Since its inception, the team has been developing neuroprosthetic systems and assistive technologies, neurorehabilitation tools and interventions, and clinical assessment tools for individuals with SCI and other neurologic impairments. Most of NET Team’s current interventions have potential for immediate clinical application within five years. Besides developing therapies, assessment, and new practices, the NET Team has evaluated the impact of these interventions on patients and their families.
