Rockies, Robots, and Rick: A photo blog

From May 15-May 17, Aim2Walk and Neuro-Solutions (our sister company, delivering cutting-edge technology to the Canadian Health Care System) were taking part in the inaugral Global Spinal Cord Injury Conference: Interdependence 2012.

Beautiful (and sunny!) Vancouver, British Colombia was our gracious host for 3 days of sharing, networking, and discussions that will shape the next generation of Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) research.  Through presentations, workshops, and product exhibits, more than 40 international health care and research facilities were able to showcase their work (including us!).  Delegates came from 26 countries and topics covered the full spectrum of SCI research, including rehabilitation and technology – my favourites.

Please enjoy these photos of our experience at Interdependence 2012:

The sun has set on Interdependence 2012, but there are many great things still to come in the world of SCI research and innovation technology.
