    Toronto Rehab researchers are looking for individuals interested in participating in a study which will identify users? needs and opinions toward new smart garments that will deliver functional electrical stimulation (FES).

    The study will involve attending a presentation about garments (shirt, stockings) embedding electrodes that can activate upper limbs and lower-limbs muscle. You would participate in a discussion taped with a microphone about your perception of these garments. Paper questionnaires will also be filled in.

    It will be one time visit, lasting approximately 3 hours.

    2. You had a stroke or a spinal cord injury (SCI) more than one year ago, and are paralyzed, fully or in part, in the leg(s) and/or arm(s).


    You are health care professionals (physiotherapist, occupational therapist, nurses?) experienced in rehabilitation of people with SCI and/or stroke.


    You are the main care-giver of a relative (parent, partner, or child) who is paralyzed and dependent because of a stroke or a SCI.

    Session location: Lyndhurst Centre, 520 Sutherland Drive, Toronto.

    Reimbursement will be provided for transportation.

    Principal Investigator: Dr. Milos Popovic
