Toronto Rehab Scientist Awarded UHN Inventor of the Year

UHN's 2014 Inventor of the Year Award was presented to Dr. Milos Popovic at University Health Network’s Annual General Meeting reception on June 17, 2015. The award recognizes Dr. Popovic’s creation of MyndMove – a commercialized product that delivers electrical stimulation to paralyzed muscles reproducing movement in arms and hands. This technology is helping stroke and spinal cord injury patients regain movement in their upper extremities that they didn’t know they’d have again. And, in many cases, function is being restored many years post-injury.

Dr. Popovic is a Senior Scientist at Toronto Rehabilitation Institute and holds the Toronto Rehab Chair in Spinal Cord Injury Research.
