Event description

Description

Tour one of the world’s most advanced rehabilitation research and development centre - KITE at Toronto Rehab - a place where new treatments and technologies have been developed for people recovering from and living with disabling injury or illness. You will have opportunities to visit the Challenging Environment Assessment Laboratory, the only facility of its kind in the world. This massive underground lab features the world’s first hydraulic motion simulator. This simulator can be integrated with four customizable testing environments that enable researchers to recreate and evaluate conditions such as ice and snow, different terrains and slopes, and driving conditions involving rain and headlight glare. The tour also includes laboratories that simulate both healthcare (e.g., a patient’s room) and home environments. Together, these world-class facilities allow researchers to safely and accurately measure the difficulties encountered in the real world. The labs are also used to evaluate the impact of new treatments, devices and technologies developed at KITE, Toronto Rehab - University Health Network.

Registrants of this tour will be able to receive a complimentary registration to the welcome reception and the closing reception for MaRS Health Innovation Week.
