Clinical Research and Clinical Trials

The known benefits of exercise along with anecdotal and clinical case study evidence provides strong support for the value of Activity Based Restorative Therapies (ABRT) in helping individuals with spinal cord injury recover sensation, function, and mobility. The next step for spinal cord injury researchers will be evaluating the results of clinical trials designed to measure the therapies’ efficacy.
