RehabMeasures Educational Resources
RehabMeassures and CROR are happy to provide additional educational information in the form of both online videos as well as downloadable slides a& modules.
Federal Research Designations
Our research discoveries set new standards and protocols in rehabilitation hospitals around the world. We regularly publish research in the world's foremost medical journals, including the Journal of the American Medical Association and The Lancet.
Researchers at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have designed the first-ever manual standing wheelchair that allows users to be mobile in both sitting and standing modes.
Repeated presentations of transient and mild hypoxia can elicit neuroplasticity and boost the efficacy of standard therapeutic strategies in certain cases of neurologic dysfunction. This study will help create a framework for the development of practical techniques to harness beneficial neuroplasticity in individuals with SCI.
RIC has again received the prestigious Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Model System designation.
Spinal Cord Injury Model System Center
The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab one of only 14 federally designated "Spinal Cord Injury Model Systems" Center. We help our patients return to the community and maximizing functional abilities while fostering independence.
This study, funded by the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation, employs implementation science methods and seeks to integrate the Spinal Cord Injury - Quality of Life (SCI-QOL) measurement system into inpatient spinal cord injury rehabilitative care.
